The Re-Envisioned Educational Technology Course: If Addition Isn't Possible, Try Division
Pierson, Melissa; Thompson, Mary
Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, v22 n1 p31-36 Fall 2005
This paper presents a new model for the required preservice technology integration course. We situate our model within the literature on the dominant stand-alone model, as well as the alternative models that have been explored. We then detail our restructured model of three one-hour courses that include focus on Introduction and Development, Integration and Evaluation, and Implementation and Assessment. We will highlight the challenges we have faced as well as our plans for continued course development. We argue that not only is our technology integration class sequence a feasible transition from stand-alone educational technology courses to a fully integrated model, but it also has unique merit for the cognitive development of our students in and of itself.
