I would like to propose a session dedicated to the sharing of (and perhaps tinkering with) tools that DHers, teachers, and researchers can use for digital storytelling. What platforms, tools, or ideas are out there for us to use? I am also interested in ways archival collections can be used in digital storytelling and how DH curricula can include primary sources. Are there applications that provide good examples of digital storytelling using primary/archival documents?
The DiRT Directory (dirtdirectory.org) is a good list of tools, but it’s difficult to find a lot of these tools in practice or have the time to familiarize oneself with the tools in order to use them in teaching/learning environment. Perhaps in the grander scheme of things, we could discuss the possibilities of using a tool and collaborating on a digital storytelling project.
