Literacy and Indigeneity Post #4

This study examined how digital storytelling could be used for teaching and learning indigenous languages. A study of 4 participants who attended 3 digital storytelling workshops was completed. There is a focus on the portability and accessibility of digital stories. The stories, although digital were created by groups, each member interacting and communicating to create the story. The author has provided details on each of the workshops. I think this could be very helpful for my research as it is very organized and well documented. The intent of the paper is to support community language revitalization.
