Oliver, Kevin; Townsend, Latricia
Online Submission, National Teacher Education Journal v6 n3 p41-60 Fall 2013
This article presents a review of recent literature about preparing teachers for technology integration. The review found six types of training programs are commonly implemented: pre-service training, long-term courses, short-term workshops and institutes, coaching/mentoring, learning communities, and product/assessment approaches. The review summarizes competencies or knowledge gaps that are typically addressed in integration training along with models used to guide teacher understanding. Finally, the review outlines factors found to impact on integration practice, including technology leadership, external/contextual factors, and internal/personal factors. The article concludes with a description of one promising technology integration training program that takes a comprehensive approach to teacher preparation and confronts factors known to impact on integration practice.
