Use The Seven Elements of Digital Storytelling handout you received earlier today to help you critique the story. 

Here are some questions to consider:

Younger students.

Watch this and other students’ digistories at the Bridges to Understanding site, including Poverty (Seattle), My Life, My Health (South Africa), and What Courage Means to Me (India). Bridges to Understanding, a Seattle-based not-forprofit, uses digital technology and the art of storytelling to empower and unite youth worldwide, to enhance cross-cultural understanding, and to build global citizenship. They offer free and membership programs that connect students around the world.
