Abstract

This study compared the effects of digital storytelling-enhanced scenario-based learning with traditional scenario-based learning on students' intrinsic motivation, learning performance, and behavioral engagement. We conducted a mixed-methods quasi-experiment to test the two conditions (N = 37 for digital storytelling-enhanced scenario-based learning and N = 33 for traditional scenario-based learning). The quantitative results indicated that digital storytelling-enhanced scenario-based learning led to significantly higher intrinsic motivation, learning performance, and sustained engagement in task completion compared to the traditional scenario-based learning setting. The qualitative results showed that students in the digital storytelling group enjoyed the new learning mode, perceived a strong self-identification and connection with the fictitious character, and appreciated the digital story visual design. Students in the two groups all agreed that authentic scenario-based learning tasks helped them better apply and reflect on the knowledge learned.
