Living with Technology Diffusion Confusion.
Isaak, Troy; Ward, John
This paper is a report on the implementation of a project to diffuse technology throughout a teacher education program in elementary education at Millersville University (Pennsylvania). Rather than relying on a single technology course in a preservice program, students develop technology skills in a variety of courses in the education sequence and through collaborative projects. Several ongoing projects are described that include the development of discipline specific technology courses, collaborative projects involving students and faculty, and technology projects in elementary education content courses. Challenges of technology diffusion are discussed related to guaranteeing basic computer skills for preservice teachers, supporting faculty technology integration, and the comprehensive nature of the program.
