Abstract

In 2001, 180 pre-service teachers completed a survey designed to assess the confidence with which they engaged in particular technology-related activities, on the first day of their education technology classes. An exploratory principal components analysis reduced the items, to a few "super-categories": 1) Classroom-Specific Teacher Skills, 2) Professional Development and Curriculum Planning, 3) Routine Applications and Basic Operations. These components were ranked in terms of greatest need for teacher education curriculum. 14 years later, the study is currently being replicated with a new cohort of pre-service teachers.
