Digital Storytelling

Welcome to FISD Professional Development for Digital Storytelling!

We are going to learn how to use iMovie and other Mac tools to create and share stories online. Digital storytelling is a great tool for educators to share what’s happening in their classrooms as well as for students to share their learning.


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.
