Integrating Technology at the Pre-Service Teacher Level: Examining the Process of Change.
Gershner, Vera T.; Snider, Sharla L.; Huestis, Ann; Foster, Jeanne M.
This paper provides a brief overview of the LINKS (Learning and Integrating New Knowledge and Skills) Program designed to integrate emerging technologies into the teacher preparation curriculum at Texas Woman's University and then details the associated research (evaluation) endeavor. This research effort provides for the assessment of individual attitudes and competencies of preservice teachers, mentor teachers, and instructors in order to refine the four cornerstones of the program--foundations, connectivity, productivity, and integration. Six instruments will be used during the course of the research in order to gather quantitative and qualitative data: the Basic Technology Competencies for Educators (BTCE); the Self-Evaluation Rubrics for Basic and Advanced Teachers Computer Use; the Technology Needs Assessment Survey; the Stages of Concern Questionnaire (SoCQ); the Levels of Use Interview (LoU); and the Open-Ended Statements of Concern.
