Abstract

In this paper, based on the evaluation criteria proposed by Chapelle (2001) the five researchers evaluated three digital storytelling websites for promoting writing skills for EFL young learners. Among the evaluated websites of Story Jumper, Tikatok, and Storybird, Storybird was found to be the most appropriate website due to better learner fit, better teacher fit, and the extra provided functions of "Class Library" and "Discussion".
