Abstract

This paper reports on an ongoing project that develops a learning material for preschool children. The concepts of courseware and digital storytelling (DST) are combined to deliver learning  contents to students. The Multiple Intelligence is mapped into the developed learning material, which is called Preschool DST, in complementing the existing technologies such as books and courseware. The paper starts with some discussions on the background of the study, followed with the  techniques used in the study. Then, lengthy discussions on the design and development of the Preschool DST follow, and finally the paper concludes by addressing the next step to perform.  This study found that the Preschool DST is able to grab children’s interest and engaging them during the learning process.
