Abstract

Research on learning with digital media and educational technology has been central in the Learning Sciences over the past decade. To support learning with these tools, multiple instructional approaches and pedagogies have been implemented, including storytelling and adding narrative elements. The purpose of this paper is to present results of a systematic literature review on the integration of narrative elements in educational technology systems over the past decade, between 2007-2017. We seek to identify and synthesize prior work at the intersection of narrative-based learning and educational technologies. Our findings focus on four categories: theoretical approaches, context, learning goals, and intervention type. We conclude by discussing the potential benefits of narrative-based learning in designing learning environments mediated by educational technology and digital media.
