Abstract

This study focuses on the use of digital storytelling as an instructional tool in a middle school setting. Writing skills and attitudes of 6th graders were measured before and after a 6-week writing unit that allowed each student to create a digital story. Data collected from scored writing samples and from responses to an attitude towards writing survey were compared to data from a control group's writing samples and responses to the survey. In addition, qualitative data were collected through interviews with teachers and students and observations of the experimental group's classroom interactions.
