The Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) conceptual framework (Mishra & Koehler, 2006) provides a way to examine the complex relationships between content, technology and pedagogy in effective learning environments. This study describes an application of TPCK to a digital storytelling project in an undergraduate teacher education course. In two sections of an undergraduate course in instructional technology (n=39), pre-service teachers explored the concept of digital storytelling as pedagogy, examined examples of the approach in their grade-level/content areas and produced their own digital stories on topics related to the implementation of technology in PK-12 schools. Study findings suggested that design tools, reflection, and peer review were key factors in learning how to use the technology to create a digital story and integrating it into lesson design.
