Project TALENT: Creating Change in Teaching Activities.
Sherry, Lorraine; Chiero, Robin; Bohlin, Roy
TALENT (Teaching And Leading for Educational Needs with Technology) is a Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) Implementation grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Besides faculty and K-12 teacher training through focused workshop sand week long institutes, TALENT has taken an innovative approach in creating "triads" consisting of a preservice teacher, a K-12 master teacher, and a university supervisor, who function as a learning community. This learning community spans two parallel activity systems: the university and the school in which the preservice teacher is placed. The project is discussed using the framework of Activity Theory, which can clarify activities and add predictive validity to TALENT's grant efforts. Includes four figures. (Contains 19 references.)
