Communicative Method of Digital Storytelling in Mandarin for 21st Century Learners

Jane Yugioksing

Abstract


Integrating technology as part of the curriculum has been the ongoing trend in many educational settings these past few years. However, to effectively develop meaningful learning in the classroom, systems need to be in place. Thus, in this study, there are twofold aims: to use digital storytelling (DST) as pedagogical tool for Mandarin language teachers to help students practice linguistic skills in a communicative approach and using qualitative instruments like oral survey and written reflections to examine the extent to which students were engaged in authentic learning tasks using digital storytelling.
