Digital Storytelling

Digital storytelling is how we write a story and enrich it with multimedia elements of voice, sounds, imagery, music, animated information, and everything else to stage it as a visual act. 

This process promises rich learning curves as it involves multi-faceted elements. The digital technology being included in the story opens a new possibility of telling a story beyond what could be accomplished without the help of digital technology. 

It requires a new set of skills and creativity that also involves the work of imagination, visualization, and at the same time certain extent of digital proficiency to tell the story in an efficient and effective manner. 

Chinese philosopher Confucius once said," I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." This highlights that applying more senses to the learning process can help build a deeper and more thorough understanding. Likewise, Benjamin Franklin's quote, "Tell me I forget. Teach me and remember. Involve me and I learn."

Or else we can follow this rule of thumbs from William Glasser who spoke out the art of learning

We learn...

10% of what we read

20% of what we hear

30% of what we see

40% of what we see and hear

70% of what we discussed with others

80% of what we experience personally

95% of what we teach someone else
