When I think of the word storytelling, many things come to mind. I think of telling a story using very descriptive words and captivating imagery to keep the audience engaged the entire time. I think of it as a more detailed way of telling something as opposed to strict repetition of memories. Storytelling is embellishment on a past occurrence without changing the facts.
Adding the word ‘digital’ to my concept of storytelling means telling the story using more resources other than words. It means using pictures, sounds, and videos to tell a story rather than just a verbal telling of the story. Digital storytelling makes it more memorable because it’s easier to remember small details if you have audio or visual representations of the key points of the story.
