Art Education Technology: Digital Storytelling
Chung, Sheng Kuan
Art Education, v60 n2 p17-22 Mar 2007
The application of digital storytelling to art education is an interdisciplinary, inquiry-based, hands-on project that integrates the arts, education, local communities, technology, and storytelling. Through digital storytelling, students develop and apply multiliteracy skills, aesthetic sensitivities, and critical faculties to address greater issues of importance to a larger audience. Digital storytelling is a meaningful and powerful way to promote visual culture art education. In this article, digital storytelling refers to the practice of incorporating digital text, imagery, video, and audio into the presentation of a computer-mediated, multimedia story. Digital stories are presented in a variety of formats, for example, an all-text web page or a nonlinear interactive website. With Internet technologies, digital storytelling makes it possible for individuals to produce their own meanings. It allows students to develop and present their own ideas to the real world.
