Today, teacher education programs are faced with a variety of challenges. They must prepare future teachers to meet national and state standards with regard to both content and pedagogy in an era when there is increased emphasis on performance. Further, they must also help pre-service teachers learn to use technology and develop their understanding of diversity and multiculturalism to function within the changing schools of today. In this new climate, teacher preparation institutions must consider new ways of doing business, and technology offers capabilities that may help to address these challenges.
