Programs That Prepare Teachers To Integrate Technology into Instruction in Meaningful Ways: How Successful Are They?
Drost, Carolyn J.; Abbott, Judy
This paper reports on the findings of a two-part study undertaken to determine how teacher education programs prepare preservice teachers to use technology in their instruction and to determine the influence of the decade of initial teaching degree on a teacher's willingness to use technology. The teacher education faculty from four institutions in Pennsylvania and West Virginia with teacher education programs were surveyed to determine the method of technology introduction currently being used. In the second part of the study, teachers from a small Pennsylvania school district were surveyed to determine the decade of initial teaching degree and the technology that these teachers were using in the classroom. According to the results, the decade of initial teaching degree is not a sound indicator of a teacher's willingness to use technology. (Contains 13 references.) (Author/MES)
