Rehmat, Abeera P.; Ehsan, Hoda; Cardella, Monica E. – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2020
Increased recognition of the importance of computational thinking as a core skill for all students has led many states to adopt and implement computer science standards, with a focus on teaching computational thinking. Consequently, there is an increased need to prepare educators that are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and instructional…

Ray, Beverly B.; Rogers, Reenay R. H.; Hocutt, Martha M. – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2020
Research explored the change in perspectives of K-12 non-STEM discipline teachers regarding coding as an instructional tool. Whether, and to what extent, participants (n = 35) are willing to embrace coding as a teaching and learning strategy was examined. Findings suggest that participants' perspectives improved as a result of their participation…

Jin, Yi; Harp, Christi – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2020
The study's purpose was to investigate whether two different pedagogical strategies, flipped classroom and flipped team-based learning (FTBL), had different impacts on preservice teachers' TPACK, attitudes, self-efficacy, and perceptions of teamwork. Several survey instruments were sent to 32 preservice teachers who were Middle Grades Education…

Segal, Pamela; Heath, Marie – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2020
This paper paints a complex portrait of the "wicked problem" of teaching technology integration in a field-based content literacy course in order to analyze how a teacher educator demonstrated a presence (and absence) of Teacher Educator Technology Competencies (TETCs). The study indicates that developing technology competencies in…

Foster, Aroutis; Shah, Mamta – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2020
In this analytical paper, we argue for the centrality of teachers in game-based learning (GBL) interventions. We examine the following research question, "What principles emerge from teacher education in game-based learning research conducted from 2007-2018?". In doing so, we examine evidence generated over 10+ years deductively and…

Kimm, Christina H.; Kim, Jemma; Baek, Eun-Ok; Chen, Pearl – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2020
As technology is an integral part of modern teaching and learning processes, teacher-candidates need to fully achieve a new set of technology competencies through ongoing and timely supports provided by teacher preparation institutions, state offices of education and school districts. This study measured the current technology-competency levels of…

Thompson, Meredith; Owho-Ovuakporie, Kesiena; Robinson, Kevin; Kim, Yoon Jeon; Slama, Rachel; Reich, Justin – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2019
Interactive simulations allow preservice teachers to connect education theory and pedagogy in scaffolded environments. We created digital simulations with scenarios from in-person simulations and used them to prepare novice teachers for conversations with parents. Using a design-based approach we implemented the simulations in an education class,…
