Preserving the Legacy of PT3 Tools, Strategies & Resources: Knowledge Capture Artifacts
Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Anne; Cullen, Theresa A.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v50 n3 p46-53 May 2006
The federal Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) grant program produced a variety of tools, strategies and resources which different grantee sites designed for educating preservice teachers on the integration of technology in K-12 classrooms. These tools, strategies and resources are referred to as knowledge capture artifacts, since their design typically represents a collection of an individual's or organization's representative knowledge. In this case, the knowledge capture artifacts focus on pedagogy-related content and technology integration. Although most artifacts were designed for local use, many are currently available to preservice teacher educators at any institution. Unfortunately, these artifacts are becoming less accessible due to the lack of maintenance and funding associated with the termination of the PT3 project. The opportunity to use these well-developed resources to support and enhance preservice teacher education is fading. Therefore, as preservice teacher educators, the authors present highlighted knowledge capture artifacts which they found useful for their own preservice education courses. In addition, brief descriptions of the selected artifacts, their value and utility for educating preservice teachers are provided. The authors strongly encourage preservice teacher educators to use, publicize and develop new ideas from these artifacts in order to continue to improve preservice teacher education in the areas of technology use and integration.
