Abstract(s)This paper reports the findings of a case study conducted on a 6th level classroom in a formal learning setting during the school year 2009/2010. The study aimed to contribute to a deeper understanding of the real potential of digital storytelling as a learning multimodal methodology. Several research instruments were developed for data gathering: two questionnaires; a focus group interview; a grid to evaluate the written productions; a grid to evaluate the digital stories and a diary to write the observations made in the classroom. The results evidenced that the building of digital stories created a student-centred learning environment that is better suited to the development of the students’ writing skills than the regular learning environment. The learning experience has also strengthened students’ engagement and satisfaction in the learning process.
