Abstract

This paper summarizes the development and evaluation of an authentic course project assignment used in a teacher education course that emphasizes integrating information technology into the curriculum. This course project has been shown to be an effective teaching and learning resource to help pre-service and in-service teacher better understand the power of wisely using Internet resources to enhance K12 learning. We have gathered positive and constructive comments from both pre-service and in-service teachers and offer suggestions for improving the procedure. In designing this authentic learning project procedure, we incorporated Type II uses of technology, grounded the procedure in authentic learning theory, and set requirements that made effective use of exiting information technology both at the university and in the public schools.
