The present study explored the impact of online Digital Storytelling (DTS) on developing critical reading skills, critical thinking and self-regulated learning skills of prospective teachers of Arabic. To reach such ends, a standardized pre-posttest in critical reading skills, critical thinking skills scale and self-rating scale of self-regulated learning questionnaire were used. The quasi-experimental research design has been used in the current research. The results of two independent sample t-test revealed that the critical reading skills, critical thinking skills, and self-regulated skills improved significantly in comparison to the control group. It is, therefore, recommended that blended learning should be thought of as a good match for students from communities with poor digital literacy and technology infrastructure. In addition, online learning should be used with care to cope with community needs to fill a real gap in-field practice in language learning to improve multiliteracy skills.
