Integrating Technology into the Mathematics Classroom: The Role of Teacher Preparation Programs
Mistretta, Regina M.
Mathematics Educator, v15 n1 p18-24 2005
Today's technology standards (International Society for Technology in Education, 2000) challenge teacher education programs across the nation to address the need to produce computer literate teachers who are confident in their ability to choose and incorporate instructional technology into their classroom teaching. The purpose of this paper is to present a description and analysis of the effects of training sessions on pre-service teachers' ability to evaluate and integrate instructional technology into the mathematics classroom. A group of 70 pre-service teachers participated in training sessions where they evaluated the features of various Pre K-12 mathematics instructional software and websites, and designed technology-based mathematics lessons. The training sessions promoted the pre-service teachers' awareness of, appreciation for, and confidence in their ability to analyze, select, and craft technology-based mathematics lessons.
