Storytelling has always been a significant part of history, but the means through which the stories have been told has evolved with each civilization. From the oral histories presented by bards in ancient courts, to the works of scribes during the Renaissance, to newspapers, CNN, and now the Internet, personal narrative has been used to communicate the events of the past. Digital media now combines tradition with technology and allows students to tell stories through voice, text, images, audio, and video.
Digital stories allow students to take a linear series of events and turn them into a multidimensional experience. It encourages them to communicate, collaborate, and research as well as to infuse media into the process. A plethora of tools and apps exists to create these projects, and all of them enable students to gain a deeper understanding of history as they explore the most effective way to retell it. Visit our digital storytelling apps page for recommendations for any device.
Digital storytelling is a short form of digital media production that allows everyday people to share aspects of their life story. The media used may include the digital equivalent of film techniques (full-motion video with sound), animation, stills, audio only, or any of the other forms of non-physical media (material that exists only as electronic files as opposed to actual paintings or photographs on paper, sounds stored on tape or disc, movies stored on film) which individuals can use to tell a story or present an idea.

A web presence (singular) is a location or place on the world wide web where a person, business, thing or some other entity is represented (see also web property and point of presence). Web presence (plural) is the collection of places on the web where a particular person, business, thing or some other entity is represented.
Examples of a singular web presence for a person could be any of a personal website, blog, a profile page, a wiki page, or a social media point of presence (e.g. a LinkedIn profile, a Facebook account, a Twitter account, etc.). Examples of a singular web presence for a company, product, brand or some other non-person could be any of a corporate website, a microsite, a page on a review site, a wiki page, or a social media point of presence (e.g., a LinkedIn company page and/or group, a Facebook business/brand/product page, a Twitter account, etc.). The web presence (plural) for a person, company, brand, product or some other entity is the collection of all the singular web presences which represent the same person, company, brand, etc.
I am asked this question constantly and I’m glad, because every job seeker should be asking this question and thinking hard about the answer. I could write a book on the subject of academic uses and abuses of Twitter and other social media at this point, and I’m sure that somewhere somebody is, because the issue has never been more fraught. But for the sake of this column, I’ll be brief.
You should have a curated Internet presence for the job market. The fact is, you will be Googled. That is not usually because search committees are trying to dig up dirt on you, or derail your candidacy. Rather, they just want to know more about you, and get a sense of your intellectual communities, of where and how you are active, and of your “style” of communication (lively, reserved, direct, blunt, tactful, supportive, combative, and so on).
