Abstract

The purpose of this study is to discover the potentials of interactive digital storytelling (DST) of preschool children in daily reading activity. This study starts with requirement analysis to determine the components of the Preschool DST. Two techniques were used in this phase namely interview and comparative analysis. The discovered components were then used to develop a prototype. In this study, the development of Preschool DST prototype followed and was adapted from the IntView courseware development methodology. There are two phases in IntView; pre-development phase and development phase. User testing was carried out after the Preschool DST prototype was completed and the evaluation was thcil conducted through observations and interviews. The subject of this study was a group of 6 year-old preschool children from PPKKTPIS-UUM. The observation was divided into two activities: observation of the activities without the Preschool DST and observation of the activities with the Preschool DST where the children are observed when they were using the Preschool DST. The observation without Preschool DST was carried out in the morning session while the observation with Preschool DST was in the afternoon. The interview was then carried out after both observations were done. The finding shows that the Preschool DST is able to grab children's interest and engaging them during the learning process. The children show their enjoyment with Preschool DST and demonstrate their enthusiasm to use the DST. The study also found that the preschool children prefer the DST than printed storybooks.
