Below you’ll find the header images that link to fifteen different Digital Story Critiques, completed by me, throughout my time in INTE 5340: Learning with Digital Stories.
I critically examined and reviewed one digital story or media narrative per week, driven by my personal and professional interests. To support my critiques, I drew upon standards and frameworks for digital storytelling and then posted each review in a blog post.
