Abstract

The impact of new technologies in educational contexts have mostly been positive as new technologies have given educators the opportunity to enhance their knowledge, skills, and thus improve the standard of education. Researchers have found that student engagement, achievement, and motivation are advanced through the integration of such technologies. However, education systems still face many challenges: one of these challenges is how to promote student engagement in order to provide better educational outcomes. It has become increasingly important to use innovative pedagogical models to engage learners. Digital storytelling is one of the innovative pedagogical approaches that can engage students in deep and meaningful learning. Digital storytelling G's a compelling activity for the language classroom. It is both easy to use for both writing and speaking inside and outside in the classroom, and it can also be a good way to motivate the students. The research investigates the pedagogical aspects of digital storytelling and the impacts of digital storytelling on the student’s learning when teachers and students use digital stories.
