Field experiences are identified as an important component in the preparation of new teachers. As such, methods to supplement field experiences with pre- and post-activities that ready preservice teachers to effectively learn from them warrant further examination. This paper presents one tool that has been used successfully to improve preservice teachers' instructional decision-making knowledge about technology integration, with the unintended outcome of readying them for field experiences in general. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
