I believe that to incorporate digital storytelling, you must have the technology necessary to enable the teacher to adjust her pedagogy and see her role as story coach instead of technology teacher, allowing digital storytelling to enable students to represent their voices in a manner rarely addressed by state and district curriculum while practicing the digital literacy skills that will be important to their 21st century futures while supporting whole language literacy practices. .
