Web Tools for Digital Storytelling

Storytelling has been a way of passing traditions, legends, oral histories, and many other cultural aspects from one generation to the next. Storytelling uses language to engage listeners in the content being explored. Having a plotline keeps listeners interested in what will happen next, and many times the listeners learn something about right and wrong or how human nature ties us all together. Storytelling is a good way to create community by learning more about the histories or feelings and ideas of the storyteller. All-in-all, perfect for the language classroom!

With the advent of Web 2.0 and the free and easy tools it has brought, we have some really fun, digital tools for your students to use to express themselves!
