This proposal outlines the development of a collaborative model of ethnographic storytelling that utilizes readily available digital technology and ethnographic methodology to facilitate generative interactions toward the production of complex and evolving digital stories. Building on a methodology that I call psychoethnography, this project aims to create a fluid form of interactive digital storytelling that can be used in both academic and non-academic settings as a research and pedagogical tool.
