DICHE - Digital Innovation in Cultural and Heritage Education in the light of 21st Century learning is an EU funded project that involves museum professionals, ICT experts and academics to develop a set of digital tools to assist with the changing demands in heritage education. In this chapter we explore how Digital Storytelling can be applied as a method to enhance the defined 21st Century skills of communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking. As suggested by Bernajean Porter (2015), ‘the digital storytelling process helps us transform isolated facts into illuminated, enduring understandings’. Hence, we propose ‘storying’ the cultural heritage as a way of making information come emotionally alive in a learning process aimed at improving the 21st Century skills.
