Abstract: Digital storytelling has emerged over the last decade as a pedagogical tool in K-12 education. Research on it’s use in higher education has emerged as a tool to help engage students in technology. While its use certainly increases digital literacy skills, its power as a narrative is often overlook. By creating a forum to critically reflect and examine emotions created by dominant groups and their belief systems, students re-examine their constructed realities about social norms and interactions with their own experiences and those of others.
