Journal of Computing in Teacher Education Volume 22, Number 4, ISSN 1040-2454
This study sought to identify the attitudes and perceptions of students in an introductory educational technology course situated within a teacher education program. Data were collected in the form of anonymous feedback throughout the semester. Findings included: students tended to enter the course with either a good deal of technology knowledge or with apprehension about using technology; students' thinking evolved from conceiving of technology in a generic classroom to a classroom in which they were the teacher; the majority of students had not experienced effective uses of technology in their previous courses; technologies incorporated into the course needed to be reflective of what was available in K-12 schools; and by the end of the semester, students demonstrated technical skills, pedagogical content knowledge, and significant motivation to integrate technology into their classroom.
