Abstract

Abstract: This paper presents a work-in-progress study that focuses on the use of digital photography and digital storytelling with young children. A five-day workshop was hosted for young children at their school with the cooperation of Student's Motivated by the Arts Center (SMARTS) at Youngstown State University with the intent of correlating the use of digital photography with literacy development. This 5-day workshop's intent was to foster a child's ability to be an effective storyteller through the use of digital photography and the use of storyboards, storybooks or computer-based digital storytelling. The research methodology seeks to prove that children's literacy development, in relationship to generativity and story elements can be enhanced through the use of digital photography.
