This paper presents the first year findings of a mixed-method study of the High Touch Mentoring for High Tech Integration project at a suburban state-supported university. This three-year project was funded in part by the Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) Federal grant program. Participants were teacher education faculty (faculty partners), K-12 technology proficient teachers (teacher partners) and preservice teacher education candidates. The purpose of the study was to: gather baseline data about faculty members', teacher mentors', and preservice teachers' backgrounds and usage of technology; examine how well the faculty-teacher partnerships were working; determine how the faculty-teacher partnerships affected the integration and use of technology in faculty partner teacher education courses; and provide feedback for formative and summative improvement of the project.
