Abstract

This pilot study examines the impact of technology integration within a multiple subject teacher education program with a bilingual or English language learner (ELL) emphasis on teacher candidate technology competence and self-efficacy to integrate technology. Results indicate that the technology self-efficacy of all participants increased during the study period. No significant differences in access to technology or initial self-reported technology competence were found between bilingual and general teacher candidates. More research is needed in technology and bilingual preservice teacher education. Studies that examine how other factors (e.g., age, childhood socioeconomic status, prior classroom experience, field assignment, and course instructor technology competence) contribute to preservice teachers’ technology self-efficacy would be particularly important.
