Technology and Teacher Preparation in Exemplary Institutions: 1994 to 2003
Hofer, Mark
Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, v22 n1 p5-14 Fall 2005
In a 1994 study commissioned by the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, Mergendoller, Johnston, Rockman, & Willis (1994) examined four exemplary institutions to identify their approaches to integrating technology into teacher education. A decade later, the field would benefit from a comparison of current approaches of infusing technology into teacher education to the 1994 findings. This study examines the approaches of the first seven teacher education programs to receive the ISTE NETS Distinguished Achievement Award. Current approaches to the process are outlined, including the identification of the key factors impacting their implementation. A comparison of the 1994 and the present study reveals that the systematic coordination of experiences in the teacher preparation program, a unifying theme throughout the program, and a shared vision of technology and teaching are instrumental and may help guide future efforts of technology integration into teacher preparation.
