Benefit of a storytelling

Digital storytelling has been used in a variety of community settings often with the aim of helping people understand and explain their identities, especially in conflicted settings or in marginalized.

Digital storytelling can help the storyteller from whatever context foster a sense of their own identity and individuality, particularly when the production process is partly collaborative. Within t

he educational environment, issues of investigating and establishing identities are also pertinent. Digital storytelling can also be a tool of social empowering, and as such is used in several different initiatives across the globe. Many of these projects give a ‘voice’ to learners who are usually not heard, as a result of their illiteracy and / or marginal status.
