Giordano, Victoria A.; Farrell, Jill B.; Paneque, Oneyda M.; Yeatts, Karol L.; Perkins, Samuel S.; Stallions, Maria E.; Rodriguez, Diane
Net-a-Morphosis in Teacher Education is a component of the ThinkQuest for Tomorrow's Teachers grant designed to prepare teachers who are proficient in technology use in the classroom and able to effectively infuse it across subject areas and grade levels to enhance learning. This study examined the results of teacher education faculty and preservice teachers being engaged in the integration of technology applications into teacher education coursework over a 2-year period. The instructional model for infusion of technology was guided by participants' varying developmental levels, collaborative strategies, constructivist pedagogy, and reflective practice. The study used a mixed method research design. Data were collected from all participants through survey instruments and reflective narratives. The themes that emerged add to the understanding of the processes essential to the construction of new levels of meaning when teacher educators and preservice teachers concurrently engage in the incorporation of a technology innovation to enhance the delivery of content. Five appendixes present data on: Net-a-Morphosis in teacher education courses; the ThinkQuest T3 catalyst grant exiting preservice teacher questionnaire; the final project reflection activity; the project faculty annual survey; participating preservice teachers' reflective themes; and Net-a-Morphosis in Teacher Education faculty reflection themes.
