    In the diploma we use a modern method of digital storytelling in the classroom. Through our research we try to determine whether a digital storytelling could be an appropriate tool for achieving learning goals for a compulsory elective course Computer Science, whether it encourages active learning and whether it makes computer topics more attractive to pupils. We are aiming to determine whether this method helps to develop and to deepen transversal key competences like creative thinking, cooperative learning and digital competence. The method was empirically examined on pupils of the last three year cycle of the chosen primary school. The pupils created digital stories on a subject “pioneers in computer science” alone or in pairs. For editing their multimedia materials and creating digital stories they used the program Movie Maker. The teacher together with pupils has set criteria for assessment of the digital stories. It was important to incorporate elements of digital storytelling. Pupils created their own stories by using story-boards taking into account the characteristics of text stories. With the aim to create a rhythm and increase the efficiency of storytelling the students include carefully selected music into their stories. The pupils’ digital stories were evaluated at the end. Pupils’ attitudes towards the use of digital storytelling in the classroom were assessed by analyzing the result of observations during the study and the questionnaire fulfilled by pupils at the end of research.
