During the fall of 2003, an implementation study was conducted with 120 preservice teachers to determine the effectiveness of using video cases in teacher education. Two video cases were used during a sixteen-week course. The video cases were drawn from a larger collection housed in an online digital video library designed to illustrate the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) for Teachers and Students. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the use of video cases illustrative of technology enriched learning environments on preservice teachers' (a) beliefs and attitudes toward technology, (b) perception of barriers to integrating technology, (c) ability to identify and discuss teaching methods and strategies, and (d) ability to design lesson activities that effectively integrate technology.
