This has been designed as a resource for practitioners and academics already engaged with Digital Storytelling or others who want to find out more. The list is compiled mainly of references to academic writing and theory about, and related to, Digital Storytelling rather than ‘examples of’ digital stories or ‘how to make..’ guides, (as there are plenty of lists of these already on the web) – though some of the websites included do give examples of digital stories to give a flavour of the breadth of the work being done in the field. The list is not meant to be exhaustive (or reflective of the Centre’s work) but hopefully the entries are ‘of quality’ and the list ranges across the different ‘landscapes’ that Digital Storytelling is currently being related to – education; film/new media/visual media; cultural; social; healthcare; community; oral history.
