Integrating Technology during Student Teaching: An Examination of Teacher Work Samples

, , ,

Journal of Computing in Teacher Education Volume 23, Number 2, ISSN 1040-2454


This study examined the teacher work samples of 197 student teachers to determine their level of technology integration during student teaching. Findings indicated that most student teachers planned to use some kind of technology, although only 40% planned to include computers and less than 20% planned for the use of computers by students. The barriers to technology integration were most often related to instruction (e.g., the technology did not serve the learning goals and the technology was not developmentally appropriate) rather than a lack of available resources and time. These findings may be explained in part by the unique character of the teacher work sample (TWS) data, which prompts student teachers to report on their technology use during a single unit of instruction. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
