In 1999, the Murray State University and its College of Education (MSUCOE; made a commitment to making technology an integral part of its teacher preparation program. The Kentucky Academy of Technology Education (KATE; was essential to the development of this program. KATE is a unit within the MSUCOE whose mission is to impact student learning (in P-16+ classrooms) by improving the use of technology as an effective instructional tool. Supported by College of Education resources and a variety of grants, including state and federal funding, KATE provides technology tools, electronic access to local and global information sources, and comprehensive training and support to both faculty and P-12 partner teachers and students. The purpose of this article is to describe how KATE and the MSUCOE teacher preparation faculty teach preservice teachers to use technology, show examples of ways these students actually use technology in their coursework and student teaching, and describe the theoretical framework guiding the infusion of technology into MSUCOE teacher preparation programs.
