This paper presents information on how to carry out an assignment that provides pre-service teacher with the opportunity to increase their understanding of how technology can be appropriately integrated into an early childhood curriculum. The multimedia projects utilize PowerPoint, a program the pre-service teachers learn as a part of their studies. The students work collaboratively with other pre-service teachers in the university laboratory school creating multimedia storybooks with kindergarten children. The result is not only better understanding of how to use technology with young children, but an increase in their technology skills and classroom management skills as they work with a small group of children. This opportunity becomes an valuable unscheduled practicum experience.
