The Effect of L2 Listening Texts Adapted to the Digital Story on the Listening Lesson


The study conducted as the action research model aimed to identify the effect of use of new story form, digital storytelling (DST) as a product input in listening lessons on listening lessons. Working group of the research consists of higher education undergraduate foreign students mostly financed by UN (N:49). The two-step procedure covers a twelve-week-process of six weeks each. The first step was applied on students studying at C1 level and the second step was applied on students studying at B1 level. During the procedure, 40 texts in DST format were used for listening lesson. Researcher diary, student diary and focus group discussions were used as data collection tools. The data obtained were analyzed with Nvivo 11 qualitative data analysis program. Themes were created by coding and categorizing the data. As a result of the research, it is seen that digital storytelling has a positive effect on the development of listening skills, positively affects learning and is more effective compared to listening lessons taught with voice recordings and increases student motivation.
