A digital Photo Story is a visual medium comprising a series of static images viewed us-ing a package such as Windows Media Player, to which music and/or commentary can be added. The Technology is often described as a means to ‗show and tell‘, which per-haps hints at the ease with which children can make use of the package. However, de-spite the simplicity of creation and use of digital Photo Stories there are clear applications within the Higher Education sector, particularly where traditional modes of delivery may not be available or accessible, distance learning being one example. In this article Yvonne Mitchell provides an overview of the technique, based on her work with Mental Health Nursing students at the University of Hertfordshire.
