Digital Storytelling...

“Stories are how we think.  They are how we make meaning of life.  Call them schemas, scripts, cognitive maps, mental models, metaphors, or narratives.  Stories are how we explain how things work, how we make decisions, how we justify our decisions, how we persuade others, how we understand our place in the world, create our identities, and define and teach social values.”    ~Dr. Pamela Rutledge, Director, Media Psychology Research Center

“In today’s culture, the noise of information can be deafening, and competing for students’ attention can be a matter of broadcasting on the frequencies to which they are listening.  The digital story, which dials into digital natives and connects them with the curriculum, represents one of our most powerful instructional tools today.”     ~Oliver Dreon, Richard M. Kerper, & Jon Landis, Middle School Journal, May 2011.
