A Constructivist Approach to Technology Literacy for Preservice Teachers.
Cooper, Peter A.; Hirtle, Jeannine S.
This paper is a report on the findings of a study conducted during an undergraduate computer science class for preservice teacher educators which was restructured using constructivist principles. Qualitative analysis techniques were applied to field notes, transcripts of computer-mediated discourse, project evaluations, an interview with the professor, and student interviews. Quantitative analysis techniques were applied to an attitundinal survey and student self-evaluations of their competency related to problem solving, e-mail, word processing, spreadsheets, presentation software, and the World Wide Web. Findings indicated that students met the technical skills required in an introductory computer science course. (Author/AEF)
