The National Educational Technology Plan claims that teacher educators are often not equipped to do their part to prepare teacher candidates to graduate as proficient users of technology for teaching & learning (U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Technology, 2017). Further, the plan calls on teacher educators to unite in efforts and improve the preparation of teacher candidates use of technology. Initiated by the publication of the Teacher Educator Technology Competencies (TETCs), the recent JTATE special issue published articles that examined the use and analysis of the TETCs with a common goal that all teacher educators should be prepared to support teacher candidates’ integration of technology. Authors share research findings as well as thoughts about the broad-scale application of their research and findings in teacher preparation programs, and provide recommendations about ways to advance the line of research and practice they initiated through their publications.
