Great fun this evening learning more about digital storytelling from Dean Shareski and David Jakes, via an Elluminate Live session! Thanks for the invite to participate, Dean! I posted some thoughts following our session as well as some of the GREAT referenced digital storytelling examples and tools on Dean’s blog (where I’m wrapping up a week of guest blogging) in a post titled, “Digital storytelling: Hobby of the present and future.”

My workshop curriculum related to digital storyelling (including podcasting) is available on I added some links there tonight for “Sources for free / royalty-free images” including this nice list from the July 2007 issue of MacWorld.

If you look at only one thing, check out this POWERFUL video (“True America“) created by one of David’s students about freedom and what it means to live in the United States. Very moving.

If you take time to view the video, take a few more seconds to rate it and then leave an edifying comment on YouTube for this student videographer. Excellent work, both in its message and from a technical, digital storytelling perspective.
