Pathway for Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Infuse Technology
Christensen, Rhonda; Knezek, Gerald
Computers in the Schools, v23 n3-4 p1-21 Feb 2007
The Millennium Project was funded by the U.S. Department of Education Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) program for four years spanning 1999-2003. The project was led by the University of North Texas and sought to increase the quantity as well as quality of technology-infusing educators entering the workforce as classroom teachers. The Millennium Project succeeded in increasing the number of technology-integrating pre-service candidates from 20% to 80% of approximately 500 new teachers credentialed each year. Pre-post data gathered from key courses each semester verified that high quality teacher preparation practices were maintained while increases in volume took place. Data sharing with other PT3 projects helped form common grounds for discussion of similarities and differences during professional meetings and project-sharing collaborative exchanges.
