Abstract

The ability of narrative would effect on the language, logical thinking, and organizational skills for children, and stimulate children's creativity. We take the objective of 'how to narrate a good story' for school-Age children to develop a digital storytelling system-children version (DSTS-C), which could be operated by school-Age children independently and prompt children to create a whole story with a framework in this study. There were 108 subjects with 10-11 ages are divided into two groups. A group was carried out the learning and creating of story by DSTS-C and B group was carried out by Non-Digital Storytelling (NDS) for experiment. The usability of DSTS-C is evaluated by Narrative Scoring Scheme (NSS) and Narrative Assessment Profile (NAP). The results show that the DSTS-C, would induce the children's interest to narrate a story with creativity and logical, is better than NDS. The DSTS-C would prompt the ability of narration for children.
