Our Lives, Our Stories: Student Digital Storytelling

Digital Storytelling is a method of telling personal stories that focuses on reflection, writing, and personal narration.  Using simple computer digital media tools, the narratives are typically stories of personal relevance: transcendence, transformation, change.  The storytelling process cultivates personal and social empowerment through “deep listening” and dialogic communication. Self-reflexive writing exercises serve as the basis for developing personal stories within a group context.  The process was developed by the Center for Digital Storytelling in Berkeley; classroom practices are based on the critical pedagogy framework of Brazilian educator Paulo Freire.  

This screening features 15 self-reflexive stories created by students in USF’s Media Studies digital media classes, Fall 2012 and Spring 2013.
