Effective Means of Integrating Technology into the School of Education.
Pan, Alex C.
This paper discusses various issues that challenge technology restructuring efforts and presents a working plan to minimize resistance and maximize faculty performance and student accomplishment at the School of Education of the College of New Jersey. The first section discusses obstacles to infusing technology in teacher education programs and summarizes the process of developing the plan to restructure teacher education programs with computer technology integration. The second section summarizes the current reality of technology needs of teacher educators, inservice and preservice teachers' technological skills, and technology implementation in student teaching is summarized. The third section presents vision statements for the restructuring effort. The following four initiatives of the working plan are described in the fourth section: restructuring computer courses; producing student leaders/educational computer experts; extending computer technology into lifelong teaching and learning; and computing for a global community. Expected outcomes of the initiatives are listed in the fifth section. The sixth section addresses two related issues: designing computer courses to help students accomplish more and focusing more on students rather than faculty. (Contains 10 references.) (MES)
