In this brief paper we describe aspects of a pilot project using a web-based tool to manage preservice teacher courses and student teaching experiences to lay the foundation for developing program-wide Growth and Impact Portfolios. Three themes emerged to describe faculty perceptions of the impact of using the TaskStream tool as instructors, with the content and pedagogy of the course, and on their students. Faculty and preservice teachers began to work together to create technologically rich instructional environments as well as a management tool. The results of the pilot indicate TaskStream contributes to creating an environment conducive for meaningful conversations among preservice teachers and instructors about the instructional, educational, and political importance of portfolio elements. It also provides a mechanism for efficient management of portfolio elements for preservice teachers and for program evaluation.
