Abstract

First experiences from a Nordic digital storytelling (DS) project have shown how the involved youth reconfigures parts of the DS mindset among other through their experiences with social media. This paper presents and discusses a project called “Stories from the North” involving researchers, facilitators and young participants from Denmark, Iceland and Norway producing digital stories based on Digital Storytelling (DS) developed at http://www.storycenter.org. The project is based on a common curiosity around the authentic dimension in the story work in DS and the often one-sided and glorified stories on social media (SoMe). Analysis of the first project phase, show us how the youth experiences with SoMe, challenge the applied DS thinking. The analysis raises questions for further debate, such as how individually or how collaborate can a DS process be, and how online presence may play, as well as awareness of other important elements.
