Abstract

Despite the comprehensive body of research on field experiences in teacher education, one specific area of inquiry lacking substantial current research is that of site-based technology-focused training for preservice teachers. To address this gap, this pilot study is being conducted to better understand how a site-based educational technology course that takes place within the authentic context of an elementary school might influence preservice teachers’ perceptions. Findings from this pilot study (n=8) suggest that this particular site-based educational technology course positively impacts preservice teachers’ perceptions of teaching, learning, and technology. More importantly, results provided the necessary substantiation to grow the teacher education program’s site-based approach to teacher education and continue offering technology-specific early field experiences.
