Integrating Digital Learning Technologies the Content Area
Keino, Leah C.
Online Submission
As the use of digital technologies in teaching and learning becomes more institutionalized in pre-service teacher preparation, it becomes increasingly necessary to incorporate content specific technology experiences to enable career and technical teachers to seamlessly integrate the diversity of digital tools available to today's learners. Using the universally recognized International Standards for Technology in Education (ISTE) National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) for learners and teachers, a course specifically developed to incorporate these standards in planning learning activities in a content area in one of the Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs demonstrates that technological applications can enhance pre-service teacher's abilities to conceptualize and create learning activities and assessments that strengthen the constructivist learning perspective. This paper provides a rationale for teaching of content specific technology courses in addition to the general technology courses in pre-service preparation of Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) teachers.
