Abstract: Information and communication technologies have transformed the world, especially if they are aimed at promoting reading in children in their first years of learning. The problems generated by deficiencies in reading comprehension in the student body affect their school performance and their progress in the upper years, creating demotivation and low levels in their school performance. The objective of the research proposal is to design a virtual classroom with digital narratives as support to improve reading comprehension in the student body. Digital narratives are a technological resource that can be applied pedagogically, combining content with visual and auditory material, taking advantage of the functionality of virtual classrooms such as Google Classroom, in which the proposal was designed. It is concluded that teachers must identify the problems that their students present in the reading process and implement new methodological strategies, so that learning is different, participatory and innovative, this is where narratives play an important role, such as resource that provides a change in the learning system and support for students with school behind, in addition to strengthening cognitive development with audiovisual stimuli.
