Telling Stories Digitally: An Experiment with Preschool Children
Kocaman-Karoglu, Aslihan
Educational Media International, v52 n4 p340-352 2015
With the emergence of the new technologies, twenty-first-century learning involves the application of new media in educational environments. Digital storytelling (DST) is a method that blends traditional storytelling with new technologies. This study was designed to compare the conceptual understanding of preschool students in DST classrooms with children in traditional storytelling classrooms. A pre-test, post-test control group design was used. Data were collected from 149 preschool children using pre- and post-test surveys and students' drawings. The findings indicate that DST improved the preschoolers' conceptual understanding of the course content more than traditional storytelling.
