As schools integrate technology into curricula, teacher educators must also continue their professional development to lead and inspire undergraduate and graduate students. This study will investigate the perceived technology-related needs of undergraduate and graduate education students; describe current technological practices of teacher educators; and identify steps needed to meet the needs of pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, administrators, and teacher educators. From undergraduate teacher preparation courses through doctoral-level courses in leadership and curriculum, a variety of technology-related learning needs exists. This roundtable presentation will engage participants in a discussion of effective instructional methods that can be used by digital immigrants (Prensky, 2001) to meet the needs of today’s digital natives (Prensky, 2001).
