Integrating Educational Technology into Field Experiences and Teacher Education Curriculum--A Systemic Approach.
Field experience is a crucial stage for prospective teachers. However, evidence shows that there are only 20% of teachers in the nation who feel well prepared to integrate educational technology into classroom instruction (1999, Year 2 StaR Report). As a result, the prospective teachers may not observe classroom teachers integrating educational technology during field experiences. This presents a severe deficiency in the teacher preparation process. This project is about systemically integrating educational technology into field experience and the Teacher Preparation curriculum. Through consultation and training, cooperating teachers work with prospective teachers to implement educational technology into field experiences, while faculty members in the Teacher Preparation Programs and the Arts and Sciences Departments set role models in the methods courses and regular curriculum. Systemic growth and collaboration will sustain in the participating schools and the teacher education institution. (Author)
