Abstract

The integration of technology in the classroom serves numerous academic functions to the students that engage in it. This is a study of the practical application of implementing digital storytelling in a classroom in order to analyze students’ perceived learning and enjoyment. Over a four-week period the researchers introduce VoiceThread to 28 fourth grade students in order to have them create their own digital stories using iPads. After the lessons are completed, the researchers distribute a survey to each student and conduct a small group interview. The study seeks to answer the following questions: How does digital storytelling through the use of VoiceThread affect students’ perceived enjoyment in an elementary classroom and instruction? Do students gain a perceived feeling that they are able to better learn instructional concepts through the development of digital stories using VoiceThread?
