This article focuses on the three-year findings of a parent survey designed to gauge their students' technology interest while receiving instruction from student teachers in a federal educational technology grant. A major objective of the grant was to engage pre-service teachers in a computer technology training program designed to equip them with skills for use in the classroom, beginning with their internship semester. As part of the 21st Century Classroom, each pre-service teacher created an educational website. The survey and cover letter were provided to parents in both English and Spanish. The findings of this project indicate that by enhancing the skills of pre-service teachers to use advanced technology in the classroom, the children taught by these interning students, increased their interest in school and their use of technology at home.
