Abstract

Changes in State regulations and National Standards have resulted in Colleges of Education redesigning their teacher preparation programs. During this redesign, many programs are eliminating their "technology course" in favor of integrating technology throughout all teacher preparation courses. This redesign has often resulted in concerns that many teacher education faculty are not well prepared to provide teacher candidates with the technology skills and knowledge needed to insure the effective integration of technology into K-12 curriculum. This paper focuses on one teacher preparation program's efforts to address this concern. Faculty members at George Mason University in the Elementary and Instructional Technology Programs paired up and team-taught an Introductory to Elementary Curriculum course, providing students with the needed foundational knowledge and technology skills.
