Digital Storytelling: Cos’è, come utilizzarlo nella didattica, con quali strumenti si realizza Il Digital Storytelling ovvero la Narrazione realizzata con strumenti digitali (web apps, webware) consiste nell’organizzare contenuti selezionati dal web in un sistema coerente, retto da una struttura narrativa, in modo da ottenere un racconto costituito da molteplici elementi di vario formato (video, audio, immagini, testi, mappe, ecc.). Caratteristiche di questa tipologia comunicativa sono: # il fascino: derivante dal carattere fabulatorio che possiedono le storie, dato che si tratta, fondamentalmente, di racconti; # la ricchezza e varietà di stimoli e significati: derivanti dall’alta densità informativa e dall’amalgama di codici, formati, eventi, personaggi, informazioni, che interagiscono tra loro attraverso molteplici percorsi e diverse relazioni analogiche. # Si tratta quindi di una forma di narrazione particolarmente indicata per forme comunicative come quelle proprie del giornalismo, della politica, del marketing, dell’autobiografia e anche della didattica. 1. 2.

Storytelling digitale, coding e riuso: quando la tecnologia unita alla didattica lascia il segno di Caterina Moscetti Maestra presso la Scuola Primaria “Mons. Bartoletti” – Istituto Comprensivo Sigillo, Perugia Le storie vissute si ricordano. Le storie vissute e raccontate arrivano lontano e prendono forma nei pensieri di chi le ascolta.

I was hooked on storytelling. The fascination grew when technology became available and opened up possibilities that were just not possible before. YouTube vs. Vimeo, What's the Difference?
