Digital Storytelling Process
Digital storytelling is an innovative participatory research method that combines narratives,
group work and technology to facilitate the creation of a two to three minute compelling visual
account of an individual.
There are 7 Elements of Digital
developed by the Center for Digital Storytelling
(CDS) in Berkeley, California. These have been cited as a useful starting point as you begin
working with digital stories.
1. Point of View = What is the main point of the story and what is the perspective of the
2. A Dramatic Question = A key question that keeps the viewer’s attention and will be
answered by the end of the story.
3. Emotional Content = Serious issues that come alive in a personal and powerful way
and connects the audience to the story.
4. The Gift of Your Voice = A way to personalize the story to help the audience
understand the context.
5. The Power of the Soundtrack = Music or other sounds that support and embellish the
6. Economy = Using just enough content to tell the story without overloading the viewer.
7. Pacing = The rhythm of the story and how slowly or quickly it progresses.
DST Process
DST Objective
: to (1) raise awareness about the social justice health issue (2) the associated
social injustice and (3) provide viewers with a “call to action”.
See example of a students DST:
Example DST
Steps to make your digital story for Part 2 of the final project
Write two to three paragraphs summarizing:
(video length = 3-5  minutes!)
Your social justice health issue being targeted
Why this is important
Give a call to action for the viewers
Write your story – Tips to assist in writing the story

Use a 4×6 index card

imagine you have 10 minutes and only the space (front &
back to draft your story). Write whatever comes out and don’t stop until either
time or the card runs out

OR this is a postcard. Chose a person you think this story is for and write them a
postcard about the story (start with “Dear_____”)

Find pictures to help bring your story to life (give a visual to the story)
Goal = find 10 – 12 pictures
Avoid photographing pictures of individual faces
Can use online pictures just make sure that copyright laws are not broken (i.e –
that those pics can be reused)
Record your voice-over (record YOURSELF reading the script)
This will be the audio in your actual digital story
Re-record this as needed to make sure quality is good. (tip…pause in between
sentences to help with when you match this to your pictures/transitions)
Can use music too, but be sure it does not overwhelm and copyright laws aren’t
Lay out your video on paper
Use the storyboard template to organize your digital story – place pictures and
script together (see example I provide)
Find a movie making platform to create your digital story using your storyboard template
Produce video guided by the storyboard layout you made
Software needed:
Movie maker = Wevideo /Moviemaker – windows, iMovie etc
Free music
Freesound project
Additional images – obtain online (as needed)
Finalize your movie
Give it a title
Provide a one-sentence take-away for your viewers
Provide additional references/resources your viewers can follow
