Abstract: Digital storytelling combines the power and flexibility of multimedia to tell a story from the creator's’ viewpoint. In this paper, higher education participants (N=65) created digital stories using original images and text in a digital book format. Embedded within the digital book the students created an original 1 minute (video story) that complemented and related to the original story. Both the digital book and the video were designed and developed by the students following a model for student created video (XXXXX, 2015). Students digital storytelling knowledge and skills increased and they perceived that they were engaged in critical thinking and collaborative learning throughout the process.
