Digital Storytelling

A few months ago, I saw posts about digital storytelling on two great blogs I follow: One Extra Degree and Ms. M's Blog.  I think I am going to try this out myself in a few weeks, so today I compiled some links with information about digital storytelling.  Click on the picture to download - hope you find it useful! 
(Edit - for some strange reason, now when you click on the link it says something about so many people viewing/downloading it and reaching a quota, so it won't open the file...  I am so loving Google Docs lately...  Anyway, if you want this list of links and it won't open for you, feel free to email me and I will send it to you.)
