Abstract

Preservice dispositions, such as self-efficacy, are important to increasing effective use of technology in the classroom. To ascertain the effect of preservice technology integration courses on teacher self-efficacy, the Technology Integration Confidence Scale was administered pre- and post-course to 211 preservice teachers in two different technology integration courses. Additionally, the ability of pre-course self-efficacy to predict in-course performance was investigated. The observed effects varied based on course structure, leading to the conclusion that self-efficacy outcomes must be balanced against the desire to keep pre-course self-efficacy from being too large a determinant of course performance.
