Abstract

This article describes a strategy for modeling the integration of technology in the curriculum of ETC 447, Technology in the Classroom, a required course for preservice lementary educators at Northern Arizona University. Preservice teachers engage in a classroom simulation in which they "do" desktop publishing, databases, spreadsheets, and hypermedia development--not just hear about them or complete practice activities. The strategy can be modified and implemented at any K-Higher Ed level. Included are samples of the course materials from the course Web site, as well as examples of student work. Although we are currently using ClarisWorks 4.0 in a Macintosh-clone computer lab, the coursework is platform-free and any of a number of applications can be used.
