May Ali Abdul-Ameer

Abstract


This paper tries to explore the effects of Digital Stories on Vocabulary learning by Iraqi young learners at the primary level. In order to accomplish this aim a three week experiment was carried out at Al- Imams' Ali private primary school for girls in Al-Diwaniyah City (Iraq). Then a test was designed to investigate whether computer and internet- based technology could improve vocabulary learning in English as a foreign language. Findings indicate that the experimental group outperformed the control group in the test. These results raise interesting issues related to the use of technology in the context of foreign language learning. Further research on how to integrate internet and computer- based technology materials within a traditional methodology is needed in order to help English Language teachers take advantage of the Web and to bring that part of the world into the language classroom.
