Meridian Stories Research Results – Measuring Educational Efficacy

Meridian Stories takes the basic educational module – the classroom curricular unit – and amplifies its worth through the layering of five value-added centers.

Research on Digital Storytelling: Summary of Studies from the University of Houston

Meridian Stories is not intended as an exercise in using technology, but as a way to explore ideas and come to new realizations about the subject matter.  In other words, students are not learning to make a documentary that happens to be about a landmark or giving a final report on a landmark that happens to be in documentary form.  By integrating media into the learning process, students conceive information and express ideas through images, sound, narrative, movement and interaction. The result is a new learning experience.
