Abstract

Digital storytelling is a process of writing a story using technology to create a movie of a personal story. The purpose of the review is to explore whether or not digital storytelling is an effective way for students in the language arts classroom to connect their writing with technology. The review begins with how technology is used with writing in the classroom·. Then the process of digital storytelling is reviewed to understand the multiple steps: (a) pre-production, (b) production, (c) post-production and (d) distribution. The use of digital storytelling in the classroom and how teachers have used digital storytelling is the final part of the analysis in the review. After reviewing the research, digital storytelling was found to have offered the opportunity for authentic writing in the language arts classroom supported by technology and would appear to help students make connections with the language arts content.
