Abstract: This study explores the use of digital storytelling with middle school (7th grade) and junior high school students (7th-9th grades) in the two rural Southern communities. Students were placed into groups and guided through the writing process to create digital stories representing their views on life as a teen in a small, rural town. Teens included facts about themselves, their level and type of technology usage, their peers, their schools, and their community. Two different rural communities were represented. Stories were analyzed both for theme shared by the communities and themes unique to each community.
