Abstract

This research explores the use of the Filmora software application to showcase digital storytelling in improving students' communication and creativity skills through some popular social media platforms, namely Instagram and Facebook. The use of filmora focused on exploring local content in culinary, tourism places, and local culture. The research also highlights the importance of digital storytelling as a contemporary teaching methodology. Twenty-five students of the English Literature Study Program in the Speaking course are participants in this study. By showcasing the story digitally, using Filmora and exploring the features, students create their story box, and video and share them on social media. This qualitative research is empirical evidence, showing that utilizing software applications in digital storytelling can be used as a tool by educators to improve students' communication and creative skills.
