While storytelling has always played a key role in education, digital storytelling is gaining popularity in geography, STEM, business, humanities and beyond. Story maps have become important tools in academia for multiple reasons: as an accessible introduction to digital mapping, as an effective tool for scholarly and scientific communication, as an interdisciplinary tool that adds a spatial perspective to disciplines beyond geography, and as a tool that cultivates creativity and collaboration skills. This session will explore the use of ArcGIS StoryMaps in diverse settings and multiple disciplines. It also will provide instructional resources for designing and evaluating student projects as well as practical advice for technical considerations (collaborative editing, managing content after student graduation, etc.).
