Infusing Technology throughout Teacher Education.
Maliski, Susanne; Bartell, Carol; Gathercoal, Paul
This paper reports on overall accomplishments in meeting goals for technology infusion at California Lutheran University's School of Education, using evaluation data collected over 3 years. Data came from surveys completed by administrators, faculty, and students about their experiences using technology at baseline (1997) and over the next 3 years. Results indicated that students used e-mail often, and this use increased dramatically over the study period. Word processing as a tool also increased over time. The use of database applications, spreadsheets, and word processing slowly increased as a course requirement over time. Students' beliefs that more technology was needed in the School of Education declined over time, as did their beliefs that the use of video recorders and videotapes helped in understanding course material and that distance learning enhanced the learning experience. The overall analysis indicated that the use of technology was being integrated at a rate that was comfortable for most students, and that students were less likely to feel that more technology was needed in teaching and learning in the School of Education.
