Even though these resources are offered as starting places for finding best available music / sound with minimal expense - creating your own music / sound effects is the optimal strategy for ensuring copyright friendly products.

Either way taking note of the resource at the time you collect it will save stress and time later when giving credits to the music / sounds finally chosen for your work.

Storytelling continues to gain popularity as an educational activity. As it stimulates a deep thinking and basic literacies, it also enhances and enriches the learning experience for student voices. Storytelling is a very powerful way of communicating with our peers and portrays to others who we are and what our own stories are. It also provides an opportunity to connect with a group by creating a shared experience. This is vital in any community but more so in an educational setting where we are nurturing and fostering creativity. Now digital storytelling has gone mobile - so get ready for the many varied ways students find themselves expressing their world.

Some rights reserved Over the past year here at Journalism.co.uk we have reported on a number of new tools and platforms which have been launched or updated, which offer journalists different ways of telling stories visually. Our news:rewired events have also highlighted a number of those tools, most recently in a dedicated session on visual storytelling at news:rewired - digital stories , which was held last Thursday (6 December).

Currently, I am moderating a free online course, Digital Storytelling for Young Learners , with a dream team of moderators who are phenomenal at working with young learners, Esra Girgin, Barbara Sakamoto, Özge Karaoglu, Jennifer Verschoor, David Dodgson, and Michelle Worgan . Over 250 participants have joined and have shared incredibly imaginative stories in our online class portfolio .

Our language learners have powerful stories to share and often share personal stories in blogs, Facebook, Youtube, or Twitter. Through digital storytelling we motivate our learners to apply, contextualize, visualize, and personalize the language they learn.
