ESL STUDENTS COME FROM VARIOUS PLACES IN THE WORLD. IT IS CRITICAL TO LET THEM SHARE THEIR LIFE STORIES IN ORDER TO BUILD THEIR CONFIDENCE IN THE NEW CULTURE. 4. ESL STUDENTS LACK THE PROPER GRAMMAR IN ORDER TO WRITE EFFECTIVELY IN ENGLISH. 5. THEY ALSO WOULD LIKE TO IMPROVE THEIR PRONUNCIATION AND BE ABLE TO BE UNDERSTOOD WHEN CONVERSING WITH A NATIVE SPEAKER. 6. DEPENDING ON THEIR AGES AND BACKGROUND, SOME STUDENTS MIGHT BE STRUGGLING WITH DIGITAL DEVICES 7. DIGITAL STORYTELLING WILL IMPROVE MY STUDENTS WRITING SKILLS SINCE THE MAIN ELEMENT IN TELLING A STORY IS THE SCRIPT. 8. DIGITAL STORYTELLING INVOLVES USING THE COMPUTER TO RESEARCH INFORMATION TO INCLUDE IN THEIR PRESENTATIONS. THEREFORE, STUDENTS WILL IMPROVE THEIR COMPUTER SKILLS AS WELL AS RESEARCH ABILITIES IN ORDER TO SHARE THEIR STORIES. 9. DIGITAL STORYTELLING WILL ALLOW STUDENTS TO PRACTICE PRONUNCIATION AS THEY NARRATE THEIR STORIES. 10. I BELIEVE WRITING SKILLS COMBINED WITH DIGITAL MEDIA WILL LEAD TO STUDENTS LEARNING AND SUCCESS.</p>
