Abstract

Storytelling is an increasingly popular way of teaching and learning English language. Two main storytelling methods: digital storytelling (DST) and traditional storytelling, are both commonly adopted in Hong Kong primary school classrooms. To compare and analyze the advantages and the disadvantages of DST and traditional storytelling, and more importantly, to study whether DST outperforms traditional storytelling in terms of facilitating students’ oral fluency and improving their learning motivation, this study is conducted in the context of a Hong Kong primary school. It was found out that DST does not effectively improve students’ oral fluency, but it largely boosts their learning motivation with its visual and audio allure. Other factors are also found to be influential regarding the teaching quality of storytelling lessons.
