Abstract

This study presents the results of a Hungarian case study based on project-based student competition (Build you own digital story!). An emerging new theory of digital storytelling as a learning tool seems to be adequate for implementing a constructivist approach to learning in practice, and supporting project-based and collaborative learning methods. The aims of our research project are the following: 1.) Identify relevant topics/subjects for such projects (science or art teaching, etc.) 2.) Evaluate digital literacy levels of users (students) for the valuable application of this tool. 3.) Study teachers' roles and methods in supporting work of their students. The first results of this project will be presented in February 2008, after the final of the competition. Our results will be based on interviews (with teachers and students), an evaluation of student's practical works and a comprehensive literature review.
