Sang, Guoyuan; Valcke, Martin; van Braak, Johan; Tondeur, Jo – Computers & Education, 2010
Student teachers should be prepared to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) into their future teaching and learning practices. Despite the increased availability and support for ICT integration, relatively few teachers intend to integrate ICT into their teaching activities (e.g., Ertmer, 2005). The available research has thus…

El-Deghaidy, Heba – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2006
This study investigated the possible impact of a science teaching methods course on pre-service teachers' self-efficacy and perceptions of self as science teachers.

Bencze, John Lawrence – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2010
Future elementary school teachers often lack self-efficacy for teaching science and technology. They are particularly anxious about encouraging children to carry-out student-directed, open-ended scientific inquiry and/or technological design projects. Moreover, because this often also is the case with practising elementary school teachers, it is…

McDonnough, Jacqueline T.; Matkins, Juanita Jo – School Science and Mathematics, 2010
Though the importance of including practicum experiences in programs for the preparation of elementary preservice teachers is generally accepted, the nature of these experiences on the development of skills in teaching science can vary greatly. This study compares the effect of variations in field experiences at two institutions, one which…

Burton, Dolores; Pac, Darra – School Science and Mathematics, 2009
Federal and state regulations mandating inclusion of students with disabilities in general education classes have made it essential to create pathways for pre-service teachers to develop skills to teach content to diverse groups of students. The study uses a framework suggested by the relationship between teacher attitude and teacher behavior…

Swars, Susan L.; Smith, Stephanie Z.; Smith, Marvin E.; Hart, Lynn C. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2009
The universal emphasis in mathematics education on teaching and learning for understanding can require substantial paradigmatic shifts for many elementary school teachers. Consequently, a pressing goal of teacher preparation programs should be the facilitation of these changes during program experiences. This longitudinal, mixed methods study…
