Digital Storytelling is not newly discussed by scholars in EFL teaching contexts. However, studies focusing on how Digital Story is employed to develop literacy in meaning-making the text among students are still very few. Thus, this study is an endeavor to investigate how Digital Storytelling is carried out to help students mean the representation of the texts. The data were obtained from the implementation of Digital Storytelling in teaching students narrative texts in the first grade of a Senior High School in Indonesia as the focus participants. Peculiarly, this qualitative study used the theory of SFL-GBA as the reference adopted in the teaching and learning process. The result revealed that students were guided to mean the texts in all stages of the Genre-Based Approach, especially in Modelling of the Text. In this phase, the teacher attempted to assist students to explore experiences represented in the Digital images. To conclude, Digital Storytelling helped the students to understand how digital images could accommodate appropriate types of processes, participants, as well as circumstances to fulfill the social function of the narrative texts.
