Prior research has indicated that all U.S. teacher preparation programs provide instruction on technology integration within coursework and related requirements. This study provides a more detailed investigation into the types and content of technology experiences U.S. teacher preparation programs offer teachers in training. The researchers analyzed data obtained from an online questionnaire, interviews, and artifacts to understand the differences among programs in regard to technology experiences. Eighty percent of respondents indicated all or some of their programs required a standalone educational technology course. Personal productivity and information presentation were the most commonly reported topics taught in all programs. This article also discusses limitations of the study and areas of future research.
