Student-created digital storytelling projects provide a number of promising opportunities in the classroom. Along with this promise come many challenges with both pedagogy and the technology. This paper provides an overview of several different digital storytelling projects in K-12 and teacher preparation classrooms, observations on issues arising in the implementation, and future directions to assist educators in moving from promise to practice with digital storytelling in the classroom.
