What is “storytelling”?

Like any word, “storytelling” may hold different meanings for different people. Personally, I think of stories as imaginative as well real life events. Telling these “stories” means presenting them to another person in a creative and unique fashion. And really a story can be about anything. It could range from the stereotypical dragons and princesses, to real life stories from the past about family members or friends.

When you introduce the word “digital”, storytelling takes on a very different perspective. The medium through which the story is presented changes. It’s no longer oral conversation or words and pictures on a page, but an electronic, digital representation of the story. However, I think it’s important to note that the story itself does not change. One can still present the same story (plot, characters, etc.), but through a different way of telling the story.
