Educational technology (ET) has become an essential part of foreign/second (L2) education. In order to prepare preservice teachers to employ ET effectively, teacher educators, as well as future teacher educators, need to develop positive ET-related dispositions, self-efficacy, and knowledge of and competence with technology. With this in mind, our educational technology and second language acquisition program developed a collaborative digital storytelling project in which doctoral students engaged with multimedia and multiple modalities to critically explore and negotiate their understandings and knowledge of educational technology. The participants indicated they benefited from collaboratively exploring and negotiating shared understandings of educational technology. They also noted that they found the project motivating and many of them added they would like to employ digital storytelling projects in their future academic work. In this presentation, we share our experiences with the first iteration of this digital storytelling project and recommend that other similar doctoral programs consider adopting it.
