Simmons (2006) discussed the effective communication channels. Communication is not only words but, tone, facial expressions, body language, gestures, listening, and timing. It is both verbal and nonverbal as Simmons noted, “When you tell a story, your body and your voice become the stage, actors, costumes, music and props” (85). A good storyteller speaks from their heart. It is not only why a story is told but how. It is up to a leader to connect with others through story which incorporates sensory perception and personal experiences whether their own or someone else’s. Storytelling opens the door to expressing similar experiences that others can relate.
Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Digital stories derive their power by weaving images music, narrative and voice together, thereby giving deep dimension and vivid color to characters, situations, experiences and insights. Tell your story now digitally. – Leslie Rule, Digital Storytelling Assoc.
Digital storytelling is motivated by a desire to have an impact on social attitudes towards gender, sex, and sexuality, both in their personal province of friends and family, and in public domains constituted of unknown or invisible audiences.
Digital Stories invites mainstream audiences to “walk a mile in my shoes” offer self-identiﬁed minority groups an opportunity to communicate both personal and political beliefs to a mainstream audience. (para p 171) Vivienne, Sonja (2017).
