On-Line Support and Portfolio Assessment for NETS-T Standards In Pre-Service Programs at a Large Southeastern University.
Shoffner, Mary B.; Dias, Laurie B.
This paper details the theoretical underpinnings of one university's approach to technology integration in its pre-service teacher preparation programs, and the results of a continuous, feedback-driven project to evaluate for technology integration through a student portfolio development process. Portfolios are assessed for multiple education and technology standards. Results of the project to date, aw well as future plans, are shared and discussed. Georgia State University received a Preparing Tomorrow's Teacher to Use Technology Grant at the Implementation level during the first year of grant awards. In the first year of the grant, the College of Education, as a whole, worked to put standards and assessment procedures into place to meet state and national technology standards. Due to a reorganization of the project management team prior to the second year of funding, a different approach was deemed necessary to meet the requirements of the grant funding. Mini-grants were awarded to faculty teams to support grass-roots level technology integration projects. This paper reports on the development efforts of one such mini-grant. This PT3 mini-grant had two foci: to continue the development of an online support system to assist preservice teachers in meeting the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) standards, and the extension of a portfolio development and assessment process to include assessment for NETS-T standards.
