Khaled Younis Alderbashi


This study investigated the attitudes of primary school students in UAE towards using digital story-telling as a learning method in classroom. Through the adoption of a descriptive analytical approach, the researcher designed a survey in order to collect primary data.  He uploaded the survey to the web through using Google Form. The survey was filled in by 99 female and male primary school students. Thus, the sample involves 99 female and male primary school students.  Those sampled students are fifth graders and enrolled in a private primary school in UAE.    Data was analysed and processed through SPSS software. Through this program, means and standard deviations are obtained and presented in tables. The researcher concluded several results. For instance, primary school students in UAE show positive attitudes towards using digital storytelling by teachers as a learning method in classroom.. Using this learning method develops students’ problem solving, critical thinking, language, and social skills. It increases students’ levels of concentration, retention and motivation to learn. However, it doesn’t improves students’ ability to draft stories nor foster their adjustment within the school environment. The researcher recommends carrying out a study to explore the effectiveness of using the digital storytelling method in UAE kindergartens from the teachers’ perspective.
