Abstract

The purpose of this case study research was to explore an innovative way to teach creative writing using digital story creation. Preservice teachers enrolled in a language and literacy course used children's literature and PowerPoint software to create their own digital stories for a course project. Many preservice teachers later reported that they then developed digital storytelling, reading and writing projects with their students during student teaching and still later with students in their own classrooms. As a result of this study and the course project, students developed a basic literacy technology pedagogy that combined literacy instruction with readily available software to integrate reading and writing instruction with technology in their classrooms.
