Digital storytelling clearly stands out as an exciting and captivating approach to use for both the teaching and practice of digital literacy, media literacy, and visual literacy skills. The exciting potential behind its use in the teaching of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) is its ability to give a voice to those students who might come and sit quietly in class and rarely have a chance to speak. Success with digital stories therefore comes when students are empowered with the ability to talk about and make meaning from their life experiences. The pedagogical possibilities offered through the use of digital storytelling are presented while providing an overview of instructional strategies, tasks, and activities suitable for narrative development with second-language learners of English. Tutorials on how to get started with digital storytelling creation tools are included, along with photocopiable handouts and templates, evaluation techniques, and a comprehensive list of a wide variety of resources.
