Digitalt berättande : ett flerdimensionellt pedagogiskt verktyg (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this chapter is to discuss digital storytelling in the context of education. Two questions guide the study: What is a digital story and what is a good digital story? What is the motivation for making a digital story? I have examined short multimodal personally-told digital stories published on the Internet. As a theoretical framework for the discussion I have compared digital storytelling with storytelling traditions in, what Walter Ong calls, the oral and the written culture. The result implies that the definition of a (good) digital story depends on what is considered a narrative. By transcending what has traditionally been considered narrative and by defining narrative in a broader sense, digital storytelling is an innovative tool and serves as a promising activity facilitating learning and development in the post modern society.
