In preparing in-service teachers who are digital immigrants to teach in connected classrooms populated with digital natives, digital storytelling (DST) was introduced as a project-based learning activity in an instructional technology course. The study investigates Sabah’s Primary School English teachers’ (N=122) perceptions and experiences in examining DST as an instructional medium and how they could be used in their future classrooms. The DSTs generated are hosted and socially shared in Wikispaces for easy access and evaluation. Preliminary investigations of DST as instructional mediums appeared to have brought about positive development of the in-service teachers' technological pedagogical knowledge, which involves an understanding of the effect on teaching and learning when educators incorporate different technologies into lessons. The project in the instructional technology course focuses on pedagogical aspects of technology and how they promote student learning.
