Digital Storytelling

Cowbird offers free and simple storytelling tools for anyone to use, combining photos, audio, and text into personal vignettes.

Digital Storyteller
Digital Storyteller offers students digital images and materials to create a digital story; a digital story combines words and pictures with narration in the student’s own voice to form a short digital movie.
