Preparing Teachers to Use Technology: Considerations from a Capstone Mathematics and Technology Course
Schneiter, Kady
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v10 n4 p457-469 2010
Preparing preservice teachers to use technology appropriately in mathematics instruction is an important objective of mathematics teacher preparation programs. At Utah State University, this objective is addressed in a combined capstone mathematics and technology course. In this course, preservice teachers learn technology skills as they collaborate with their peers in mathematical investigations, as they learn to use a variety of technological resources and to adapt to new technologies that will foster the understanding of their future students, and as they share their mathematical and technological expertise to enrich the common learning experience.
