Abstract: This paper explores connections between digital storytelling and learning portfolios in the context of pre-service teacher education. It examines the potential role of digital stories in supporting the presentational functions and reflective processes inherent in portfolio tasks. Eleven prospective primary teachers participated in this completed study by incorporating their own digital story as an integral part of their learning portfolio. Their digital stories helped the student teachers to present their learning journey in compelling ways and enhanced synthesis and analysis of the learning experiences associated with their portfolio artefacts. The digital stories also became an object of reflection in their own right.
