A Comparison of Teacher Education Faculty and Preservice Teacher Technology Competence
Carroll, James B.; Morrell, Patricia D.
Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, v23 n1 p5-10 Fall 2006
Technology skills and attitudes were compared between 51 school of education faculty members and 378 student teachers in teacher education programs in six Northwest liberal arts colleges. Few significant differences were found between the groups. In general, faculty members had higher levels of knowledge of a greater number of technology-based tools but students reported higher levels of skill with online communication tools and graphing calculators. Evidence did not appear that suggests student teachers believe themselves to be more technology competent or know more about educational technology than school of education faculty members.
