The aim of the current chapter is introducing an innovative technique of teaching and learning that is the combination of the art of storytelling with the benefits of technology. Digital storytelling is defined as sharing one's story through several medium of voice, imagery, music, text, sound, video and animation. The main underlying theoretical basis of digital storytelling is Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning (CTML) that focuses on how people learn more deeply from words and graphics than from words alone (Mayer, 2005). The chapter deals with what digital storytelling is, the theoretical framework of digital storytelling, its role in education and how it can be made and used in teaching and learning by teachers and students.
