Professional Development in Teacher Education: What Can We Learn from PT3?
Hall, Leslie D.; Fisher, Clint; Musanti, Sandra; Halquist, Don
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v50 n3 p25-31 May 2006
The familiar adage states that teachers "teach like they were taught." The lack of technology integration in classroom teaching practices would then indicate that teachers are experiencing little technology integration in their teacher preparation programs. This article identifies many barriers to technology use in teacher education and reports approaches to faculty professional development that support increased integration of technology into teacher education. The authors examine 34 PT3 grants containing a teacher education faculty development component to explore the approaches taken, the barriers encountered, and the lessons learned from these grantees' experiences. The grantees involved with these professional development initiatives provided rich data concerning the approaches taken to offer personal experiences that in many cases altered beliefs about the role of technology in teacher preparation.
