The panel presentation herein shares strategies and outcomes of the implementation of the SOWEGA PT3 (Preparing Tomorrow's Teacher to use Technology) Project at Albany State University (ASU). The strategies are: (1) Infusing technology into core courses that will serve as models for future teacher, (2) providing technology training to faculty in collaboration with the Education Technology Training Center to strengthen technology competence system-wide; (3) encouraging the development of technology intense course materials, (4) awarding mini-grants to faculty members who will promote the interests of the SOWEGA PT3 project; (5) targeting pre-service teacher for Intensive Technology (InTech) training, and (6) collaborating with area schools to encourage student teachers utilizing technology at schools where they are doing student teaching. The PT3 project has fostered multi-disciplinary activities that promote active use of technology.
