Digital Storytelling (DS) is a creative combination of images and sound that allows the production of pedagogical resources with high potential for teaching and learning. Recent research shows that teachers familiarity, confidence and skills in integrating technology into the curriculum are dependent on education programs that provide technology-rich experiences throughout all aspects of the training. Aware of this reality and responsible for preparing digitally wise teachers, a DS activity was implemented with a group of post graduate teachers who attended a program on Educational Technology. For one semester teachers studied the theory of visual learning, prepared still images and created digital stories for classroom use. In this paper, we describe the training experience, present and reflect on teachers feedback and conclude that DS is a powerful tool to use in the field of technology and teacher education because it allows teachers to mobilize their multiples knowledge on curricular contents, pedagogy and technology (TPACK).
