Filling the Gap with Technology Innovations: Standards, Curriculum, Collaboration, Success!
Journal of Computing in Teacher Education Volume 23, Number 3, ISSN 1040-2454
Filling the Gap with Innovations is a study of a higher education professional development model used to infuse a teacher education program with technology innovations in order to address curriculum gaps. Professional educators at the university level are not traditionally collaborative. Yet, when an assessment of program alignment to state professional teacher standards identified six areas inadequately addressed by program content, instructors participated in a collaborative process to eliminate the deficiencies using innovative technology solutions. The three processes from the Concerns-Based Adoption Model (CBAM) helped instructors better collaborate during the change process as well as provided summative data. The results indicate collaborative practices had the most impact on the level to which the innovation was used and adopted by participants. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
