Technology in teacher education: whats working, whats not.
It is difficult to ignore the presence of technology both in our everyday lives, in schools and in the work-force. As we prepare students to be educated in and work in this technology rich environment, we must teach in new ways. Some of these have been explored through research, many of these are implemented in small pockets. More than ever pre-service teachers in all domains need adequate pedagogical and content preparation with respect to specific and integrated use of technology.
I am interested in hearing your thoughts about how you use technology in you teaching, the skills that you gained in your credentialing and Masters program and those that you wish you had been taught. I will use these responses, along with those of professors in credentialing programs, to examine the current state of teacher preparation programs and make suggestions for program improvements.
