Math and Science Teacher Candidates' Use of Technology to Facilitate Teaching and Learning during Student Teaching
Tassell, Janet; Stobaugh, Rebecca Ruth; McDonald, Michael
Educational Renaissance, v2 n1 p17-28 Jun 2013
The goal of this study is to determine how effectively student teachers from a large comprehensive institution have used technology to complement their teaching in mathematics and science. The researchers reviewed the required Teacher Work Sample (TWS) capstone projects of student teachers. The TWS is an assessment instrument designed to guide student teachers in designing, implementing, reviewing, and adjusting instruction. Student teachers document in the TWS narratives their use of technology, and this use was compared to the "2008 U.S. Department of Education (USDE): Measures of Teacher and Student Technology Use." Data gathered in the study revealed both strengths and weaknesses regarding the student teachers' use of technology to enhance their teaching goals. Implications are derived about effective use of technology by mathematics and science teacher candidate preparation.
