Online Submission, Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET v5 n2 article 2 Apr 2006
In this study, we discuss the use of generative evaluation as an innovative approach in the analysis of qualitative interview data for evaluating simultaneous renewal of Iowa State University's PT3 grant. Goodlad's (1994) simultaneous renewal framework forms the basis of our argument. We focused on the CREATER+ model designed to explain the complexities of understanding simultaneous renewal in this multifaceted university/K-12 partnership. TechCo (Technology Collaborators for Simultaneous Renewal), Iowa State University's (ISU) Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) implementation grant project is aimed at developing systemic change in K-12 schools and teacher education programs through simultaneous renewal. A working definition of educational renewal is an ongoing process of self-examination, reflection, and change (Rafferty, 2003). In this regard the project is focused on renewing teacher education programs through the extensive and effective use and integration of technology in student-centered learning environments. John Goodlad's (1994) theory of simultaneous renewal and constructivist theory in learning and teaching provide the two major frameworks of TechCo. (Contains 1 figure.)
