Abstract

Digital storytelling integrates the traditional art of oral storytelling with the technology available in the twenty-first century classroom. The aim of this study was two-fold: firstly, to investigate the effect of digital storytelling on learners' oral proficiency, and secondly, to determine how far learners were satisfied with the digital storytelling experience. The research employed a quasi-experimental design in which eight first-year college students at Zewail University of Science and Technology in Egypt participated in the treatment that lasted for five weeks in the summer of 2017. The instruments for data collection constituted a pre-post speaking proficiency test, an interview, and written reflections. The findings showed that there was a statistically significant positive effect on learners’ oral performance. It was also revealed that the participants were greatly satisfied. Recommendations of the study and suggestions for further research were provided.
