As far as digital tools and skills for Storytelling is concerned, although there is an obvious element of creativity involved, there are still some digital tools that you can use to help structure and present your ideas.

According to the Europeana Web site, Digital Storytelling may include

online exhibitions that use narrative text to weave together curated content – images, texts, video – on a particular topic, the latest being Heritage at Risk. Or 11-11: Memories Retold, a video game using Europeana 1914-1918 content to bring a more personal touch to the history of war. Or a YouTube channel using digital cultural content in videos aimed at students, exploring the importance of the steam engine”.
