What is digital storytelling?
*For this professional development series, we will use Chun-Ming, Gwo-Jen & and Iwen's (2012) definition of digital storytelling.
*"digital storytelling has been employed to develop the learning tasks as a project-based learning activity,
including taking pictures with digital cameras, developing the story based on the pictures taken, producing a film
based on the pictures by adding subtitles and a background, and presenting the story" (pg. 371).
