Hestness, Emily; Jass Ketelhut, Diane; McGinnis, J. Randy; Plane, Jandelyn – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2018
We investigated teacher learning within a professional development (PD) workshop series on computational thinking (CT) for elementary-level mentor teachers. The purpose of the PD was to prepare mentor teachers to support preservice teachers in integrating CT into their classroom practice, toward the broader goal of advancing CT for all in the…

Israel, Maya; Ray, Meg J.; Maa, Wendy C.; Jeong, Ga Kyung; Lee, Chung Eun; Lash, Todd; Do, Virginie – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2018
As school districts implement initiatives that bring computer science (CS) to academically diverse K-12 schools, they face heightened demands for supporting teachers in meeting the needs of a broad range of learners. However, limited knowledge exists about pedagogical approaches to teaching CS, especially to students with disabilities. This paper…

Rich, Peter; Belikov, Olga; Yoshikawa, Emily; Perkins, McKay – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2018
Increasingly, elementary teachers are being asked to teach the missing elements of a STEM education--computing and engineering. Over the course of a year, we worked with an entire elementary school (K-6) to implement computing and engineering lessons. Through persistent observation, field notes, and interviews, teachers revealed both enablers and…

Schussler, Deborah; Frank, Jennifer; Lee, Tsan-Kuang; Mahfouz, Julia – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2017
Nearly one in three students in the United States today is negatively impacted by bullying. Teachers can play a critical role in stopping bullying-related violence, but many struggle with how to engage students in difficult conversations. Traditional classroom-based pedagogy used to teach communication skills (e.g., modeling & role-play) is…

Amador, Julie; Weston, Tracy; Estapa, Anne; Kosko, Karl; De Araujo, Zandra – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2016
This paper explores the use of animations as an approximation of practice to provide a transformational technology experience for elementary mathematics preservice teachers. Preservice teachers in mathematics methods courses at six universities (n = 126) engaged in a practice of decomposing and approximating components of a fraction lesson. Data…

Marquez, Brion; Vincent, Claudia; Marquez, Jessie; Pennefather, Jordan; Smolkowski, Keith; Sprague, Jeffrey – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2016
Classroom management remains a challenge for many teachers. The approach and delivery of professional development (PD) in classroom management may determine how well teachers are able to apply evidence-based approaches in their classrooms. We use existing literature to identify the key features that make in-service PD effective and present them as…

Estapa, Anne; Amador, Julie – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2016
Teacher educators use a multitude of technological sources to enhance teachers' learning. More specifically, many teacher educators incorporate video as a tool for supporting preservice teachers to analyze noticing of pivotal classroom interactions; however, this video is often from a perspective distinct from the teachers' view. This study…

Brennan, Karen – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2015
In this article, we explore challenges encountered by K-12 educators in establishing classroom cultures that support creative learning activities with the Scratch programming language. Providing opportunities for students to understand and to build capacities for creative work was described by many of the teachers that we interviewed as a central…

Tillman, Daniel A.; An, Song A.; Boren, Rachel L. – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2015
In education, mathematics and science are often taught in a manner that lacks opportunities for students to engage in creativity, and the arts are allotted less time with fewer resources. This study focused on integrating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) lessons with arts-themed activities to create interdisciplinary STEAM…

Castro Superfine, Alison; Li, Wenjuan; Bragelman, John; Fisher, Amanda – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2015
Noticing children's mathematical thinking is an important aspect of what teachers need to know. This study explores the role of videocases in supporting preservice elementary teachers' noticing of children's mathematical thinking. Findings from a quasi-experimental study of preservice teachers' engagement with videocases indicate no significant…

Arya, Poonam; Christ, Tanya; Chiu, Ming – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2015
This study examined how characteristics of Collaborative Peer Video Analysis (CPVA) events are related to teachers' pedagogical outcomes. Data included 39 transcribed literacy video events, in which 14 in-service teachers engaged in discussions of their video clips. Emergent coding and Statistical Discourse Analysis were used to analyze the data.…

Vereb, Anita; Carlisle, Joanne F.; Mihocko-Bowling, Emily – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2015
This study explores teachers' response to a professional development program called Case Studies of Reading Lessons (CSRL) that uses case studies of reading instruction to provide opportunities for elementary teachers to learn to analyze features that affect the quality of reading lessons. One important question is whether analyzing others'…

Staus, Nancy; Gillow-Wiles, Henry; Niess, Margaret – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2014
A new primarily distance education Master's degree program was focused on the development of technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) for integrating appropriate digital technologies in mathematics and science classes. In this mixed-method multiple case study, we documented in-service K-8 teachers' perceptions of their TPACK…
