Digital Storytelling started at the Centre for Digital Storytelling in the US. The idea is that there's a vast archive of interesting photos and artifacts in homes around the world, and by getting people to tell stories about themselves and post them online we can tap into this archive, and give Joe Public a chance to have some control over the media for a change. The BBC has gone for this in quite a big way.
Digital Storytelling? Everyone has a story to tell. Technology now allows anyone to tell it in their own way. Digital stories are short films made by people like you using computers and personal photographs. BBC is broadcasting a part of the stories for viewing on the big screens.
