Abstract

This research study identifies the problem solving strategies pre-service teachers use in learning specific technology skills within an educational technology methods class which is offered both online and face to face. It also looks at how strategies used differ by the format of this course; and to what extent the type of problem solving strategies and/or course format correlate with the students’ expressed level of confidence and competence to integrate technology into their future classroom settings. A quantitative methodology is used to determine which factors influence perceived technology integration competence and confidence at the end of this technology methods course. Data is extracted from surveys of over 1,500 students who had taken the educational technology methods course during nineteen (19) different online and face to face semesters at Western Michigan University.
