The demand for the integration of technology into our K-12 schools dictates the technology curriculum in higher education.

Today's pre-service teachers are the classroom teachers of tomorrow. They must be prepared for the near and distant futures. To this end, faculty and staff in higher education continuously strive to be on the cutting edge. There is a constant alert for what's new today and what's coming tomorrow. One is always looking ahead of the curve in order to be prepared for the future. In order to provide information for the updating of a college curriculum, the following study was conducted.
