This paper investigates the effect of Digital Storytelling (DST) on Japanese EFL learners’ CALL attitudes and awareness of CALL tasks. This study starts with the construction of the questionnaire scale of Digital Storytelling, which we used as an evaluation form in our experimental study. With the constructed questionnaire, consisting of 13 factors with 52 question items in total, this study examined the effect of a DST course, which was held at a Japanese university as an intensive course, on the change of learners’ awareness of CALL attitudes and tasks. The result indicated that some key factors their attitudes toward CALL and its tasks were significantly changed between pre-test and post-test, implying that the course had an effect on learners’ awareness of CALL courses and enhancement of practice with technology to improve their speaking proficiency.
