The aim of this paper is to investigate the influence of the implementation of WebGIS Story Μaps in teaching and learning. As an interactive digital storytelling tool, available online, it has considerable potential to enhance teaching methods and may help students develop spatial and critical thinking as well as inquiry skills. An interdisciplinary/cross-curricular approach was implemented in the Physics course as a case study. The research was conducted in two schools on Lesvos island: the Experimental General Senior High School and the General Evening Senior High School. The research sample was 45 students, who produced digital stories, during the interventions. The tools of the research were a pre and post test questionnaire and students’ digital stories. The findings showed that students enjoyed participating in digital narrative activities, while at the same time they increased their knowledge of Physics.
