Researchers and practitioners agree on the need for quality instructional technology experiences for preservice teacher education students (Wetzel, 1993; Davis, 1993; Smith, 1999). Even with increased levels of exposure to technology in teacher preparation programs, there is a need to increase proficiency in incorporating instructional technology throughout the curriculum. Very little research exists that support whether or not preservice students retain a significant amount of their acquired skills and strategies for integrating technology as they begin their careers. This study investigates transition (student/technology) from preservice teacher to practicing teacher and the technology strategies and skills that follow into practice (the classroom). Findings to be shared present a more comprehensive picture of the way in which technology embeds itself in the teaching practices and educational priorities of teachers.
