The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of digital storytelling (DST) to improve oral reading fluency using a soft-ware “Photostory 3” with “preview” function. This application is easy to handle the recording and revising of the narration that is important to reflect on their oral reading. DST, an art of telling stories with various multimedia tools, such as text, still images, audio, and video, combines the functions of visualizing and verbalizing, which are essential for language comprehension and thinking. The participants were 35 nursing students in Japan, and they made DST on nursing episodes from a textbook. DST activity enabled them to learn to read deeply, visualizing the story as well as enjoy verbalizing their interpretation of the context, which lack in most Japanese students due to reading/translation teaching method. Essentially, DST developed oral reading skills for effective speaking and enhanced their motivation and self-esteem.
