Lessons Learned from PT3
Duffield, Judith A.; Moore, Julie A.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v50 n3 p54-58 May 2006
Technology integration is a three-pronged effort. Not only do teachers, no matter the level, need to know how to use technology, they need to know how to integrate it into their curriculum. These two prongs were a consistent theme throughout the Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) projects. Add access to technology to these and one has a powerful base from which emerge technology-using teachers. PT3 only addressed this third prong during the first round of applications through capacity building grants. These were targeted toward supplying institutions with computers and other hardware and infrastructure necessary to their being able to integrate technology into their teacher preparation programs. The purpose of this special edition of "TechTrends" was to capture and share the knowledge gained from the over three hundred PT3 catalyst and implementation projects initiated between 1999 and 2001 and completed by 2005. As is implied by the title, the intent of the PT3 program is to change the way preservice teachers are prepared so that they enter the teaching profession with the skills and dispositions necessary to integrate technology into their classrooms and schools. In this section, the authors review the strategies that were most prevalent and successful. They can be grouped into three types of activities: professional development, curricular reform and incentives. (Contains 1 table.)
