The Master Technology Teacher (MTT) initiative at the University of Alabama is a collaborative technology partnership among university secondary education faculty, inservice teachers, and preservice teachers. MTT is designed to provide, to the partners, resources and long term development for enhancement of classroom technology integration and the development of technology skills. The authors present a discussion of the need for such a program, observations from the first five-year efforts, procedural details, and the challenges and successes experienced by the program partners as all participants brought technology to their students.
