Guajardo, Miguel; Oliver, John A.; Rodriguez, Gregory; Valadez, Monica M.; Cantu, Yvette; Guajardo, Francisco
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v6 n5 p145-161 Dec 2011
This article introduces a social innovation that contributes to the formation of educational leaders. Digital storytelling is employed as a process for data creation, analysis, and synthesis. Emerging educational leaders are guided through a process to better understand the experiences and social constructs that inform their identity. Through a dialogical and reflective mode this article employs a student's story, where the text of story emerges as the unit of analysis as it is embedded into the text as primary data. Technology complements the storytelling process to construct a digital story of self as the student embarks in a leadership program. (Contains 4 figures.)
