This paper explores an understanding of digital storytelling as a narrative pedagogical methodology. Through a review of literature, the authors situate the background, current application, and power of digital storytelling as an educational tool. Next an overview of a narrative orientation to teaching and learning as applied to digital storytelling is presented. Finally, the authors explore epistemological implications, process issues and appropriate learning outcomes for digital storytelling when embedded in a narrative pedagogical framework. Their primary premise is that an understanding and consideration of the narrative orientation to teaching and learning will enable educators to make more discriminating and effective use of digital storytelling.
