Abstract: Pre-service teachers’ e-skills are important for instruction in the 21st century digital classrooms. One hundred final year pre-service teachers participated in a digital story telling project. Ten student facilitators were appointed and trained to assist throughout the digital story telling video production project. The facilitators used Microsoft Photo Story 3 to demonstrate how to put together a digital story into a video-recorded story. The pre-service teachers worked individually to produce their own digital story which they showcased on “Show day”. A qualitative methodology was used to interpret pre-service teachers’ technology skills acquisition for the project. Fifteen participants were randomly picked for a focus group discussion. The pre-service teachers said the video making process easy, as they were assisted by peers and family. The study urges teacher training institutions to innovate digital literacy skills to prepare pre-service teachers for the 21st century learners.
