Abstract
Digital storytelling can be one of alternatives to improve early childhood literacy. This means that, literacy does not only refer to one’s ability to read or write but also to a learning process. Thus, digital storytelling might not only be beneficial to teach reading and writing to younger children but also making them eager to learn more. Nevertheless, the efforts should not only be burdened to teachers. Parents should also be involved in this effort of building their children’s literacy. However, in order to ensure the success, parents need to be equipped with practical approach and techniques to utilize digital storytelling to enhance their children’s literacy skills. The present study is a conceptual paper which aims to suggest the effectiveness of training parents to utilize digital storytelling in order to improve their children’s literacy. By involving parents, learning will not be confined to what taught at pre-school but also extended to parents-children interaction. In addition, it will strengthen bonds between parents and children.
