"It Should Have Been Stressed in All Education Classes": Preparing Pre-Service Teachers To Teach with Technology.
Hardy, Michael D.
This paper highlights the results of an investigation of preservice elementary teachers' perceptions of their ability and preparation to teach via technology. Results indicated that participants tended to perceive themselves as capable of teaching via technology. However, they had difficulty identifying specific technological resources for teaching. Further, participants tended to be less positive in their perceptions of both the extent to which their degree program prepared them to teach via technology and the extent to which their instructors modeled the effective use of technology. Accordingly, modifications to teacher education programs may be warranted and some suggested alterations are provided. (Contains 11 references.) (Author/SM)
