Abstract

Technology is always advancing and changing. The rate of technology change is rarely operationalized or tracked. Additionally, it is not often found as a variable in the literature when discussing teacher acceptance and use of instructional technology. This "Bird of a Feather" session aims to engage participants in conversation on how teacher prep programs and teacher professional development can be adjusted to take effects of technology change into account. Other questions to be posed are: What does technology adaptability look like in educators? How can we operationalize and track technology change rates within school systems? Has emergency response teaching and learning (ERTL), due to the COVID-19 pandemic, changed teacher perceptions and responses to technology and rates of technology change? If so, how? Will there be long-term impacts on technology beliefs and behaviors moving forward?
