Digital storytelling (DS) blends storytelling traditions with computer-based technology as a way for people to be able to tell their own story using free multimedia tools. Through the use of digital storytelling technology, people are empowered to share a meaningful, heart-felt message, and are moved from being passive recipients of health messages to actively creating a way to have their voice enter the conversation to make a difference in the story of wellness for the Native Peoples of Alaska.
DS combines narration, images, sound, video, and technology to create a short movie. Participants give voice to their passion and meaningful experiences as they exercise their power to write and create their own personal narrative. Through digital storytelling people are empowered to be the storyteller and the teacher.
Additionally, DS provides an opportunity for participants to acquire and demonstrate technology skills, using multimedia tools that are often free and accessible via the internet. DS gives participants access to develop their own media messages for health or wellness, which are relevant to their community.
