NCATE Standards for Educational Technology: One College Meets the Challenge.
The teacher education unit at Chestnut Hill College (Pennsylvania) worked to incorporate National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards for technology education into its courses. Chestnut Hill intended to educate current students in technology use and planned to establish communication between the applied technology and education faculties and to bring applied technology faculty into the education department. Strategies have included placing two students who were both candidates for master's degrees in applied technology and certification in elementary education as student teachers in classrooms where teachers had integrated technology into their existing curricula. In addition, a member of the applied technology faculty has assisted students who chose to demonstrate software to their education classes at the college. Also, a member of the applied technology faculty and a member of the mathematics faculty collaborated to create a software folder for the Mathematics Teachers course. Students in that course were then required to work with that software and evaluate each piece. In addition, a member of the applied technology faculty taught the equivalent of one course as a guest lecturer in various undergraduate and graduate education courses to inform students of software and technology types and to model incorporating technology into education courses. The paper concludes by describing seven projects planned for the future. (JB)
