Millennial generation is naturally connected with digital learning. Therefore, the usage of technology in enhancing learning is crucial in order to achieve better learning outcome. The problem was some Elementary schools in Pekanbaru still insisted in employing manual learning style. Instead of using digital tools, they worked on manual books as teachers complained that the main issue was children short attention span, that no matter how interesting the presentation, the pupils were not into them more than allocated time for them to be interested in. Moreover, the existing digital materials were not sufficient enough, irrelevant with the curriculums and even teachers, themselves, especially the digital immigrant generations faced difficulties in composing and adjusting those digital materials due to their lack of skills in dealing with technology. This happened to almost all subjects taught at schools. Based on this case, the researchers tried to design an integrated learning media, focusing only on English language learning as English was one of considered difficult subjects. Designing a digital application for this subject which is in line with curriculums and targeted learning outcomes, as well as it combined animation, audio and video and text are expected to help teachers in working out with pupils’ lack attention span, and its handy features eases them to operate the digital media, that it is not necessary for the teachers to attend a special class in comprehending the way to make use the said media.
