Digital storytelling is an approach which makes the participants reflect, commit themselves and inspire. Process of digital storytelling and the listening of stories made by others bring out the voice of the individual and empowers. The storyteller, the group or whole community can learn from stories. If desired, the global public can share the story with the help of social media. I am interested in the connections digital storytelling has to learning and to the development of organisations. Digital Storytelling and Narratives in Learning is my research title as a PhD student.
I organize digital storytelling workshops for different groups, organisations and projects as a freelancer. I use methods of phototherapy in digital storytelling workshops and it seems it helps storytellers to start their own creative process.
As a method digital storytelling is very flexible and I believe the use of digital storytelling will grow as part of user generated contents in schools, projects, organizations and elsewhere in near future. Technology is no more an obstacle. The only limit is our imagination.
