This multi-year program was based on the premise a digital divide exists between the technology skill levels of public school faculties compared to those of undergraduate teacher education candidates. The Technology Mentor Fellowship Program (TMFP) matched technologically-proficient pre-service teachers with K-12 teachers to model technology as an instructional tool. A consortium consisting of seven school districts and a university designed an approach for integrating technology into teacher preparation programs that allowed over 5,000 high-need learners to access teachers prepared to teach in increasingly high-tech classrooms. Increasing technology knowledge and skills among participating teachers became evident during the program.
