In this study we investigated how augmented storying fosters children's ecological imagination. Augmented storying couples culturally-based nature stories embedded in augmented storytelling technology with children's own mobile and multimodal storying activities outdoors in local ecologies. The study took place during a four-month, cross-curricular project in a Finnish elementary school and its neighborhood. Results reveal affective, embodied, sensual, cultural-scientific, symbolic, and moral intensities, highlighting the educational possibilities of augmented storying as a way to enhance children's ecological imagination by becoming entangled with multimodal stories about the places they inhabit.
