Sustaining Technology Integration in Teacher Education
Cohen, Marvin T.; Pelligrino, James W.; Schmidt, Denise A.; Schultz, Susan
Action in Teacher Education, v29 n3 p75-87 2007
The three cases presented in this article compose the stories of how, beginning in 1999, these institutions took up the challenge to systematically integrate technology into their core teacher education programs. Each college of education received funding from the U.S. Department of Education PT[superscript 3] (Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology) grant program and private support from foundations such as Atlantic Philanthropies. Yet the question always remains whether work such as this can sustain itself when the funding period is completed. In each of these cases, there seems to be an indication that work with technology has found its way to the core of the institution's mission and that the integration of technology will be sustained. An overview has been developed to help us better understand the factors that are shared across the three cases and to identify pressing issues that exist in teacher preparation related to technology integration.
