Sharing photos and short videos with others has become increasingly popular among youth. Although sharing videos is a common activity among youth, schools are not using digital videos for learning. There is a need to study the pedagogical models that could be used in designing classroom activities involving the use of digital videos. In this chapter, digital video storytelling will be discussed in the context of learning. In this chapter, pedagogical models, examples, best practices, and outcomes that illustrate how students become engaged and motivated when using digital storytelling in knowledge creation in cross-cultural settings will be presented. The pedagogical models discussed in this chapter are Global Sharing Pedagogy (GSP) and Video Inquiry Learning (VIL). A review of existing tools and practices for digital video storytelling will be presented. The results show that students can become highly engaged in learning through digital storytelling.
