Abstract

More than 20 preservice methods courses are currently taught in the College of Education at the University of North Texas. Prior to 1999, fewer than half of these courses made extensive use of information technology, and fewer than one-fourth involved active modeling technology-infusion teaching and learning techniques. Utilizing Funding from a Department of Education, Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3), the College of Education at the University of North Texas is producing technology enhanced teachers for the 21 st century. The preservice teacher initiatives of the PT3 grant have provided: Technology mentoring programs for senior faculty members An opportunity for credentialing of technology competent paraprofessionals An infusion of technology enriched experiences within the preservice teacher education curriculum The current paper seeks to outline four of the activities sponsored by the PT3 program.
