Abstract

If classroom teachers are to meet the need for meaningful integration of technology in educational settings, there must be a restructuring of both teacher preparation programs and current classroom practice. The purpose of this paper is to share the progress of a collaborative partnership between an urban school district and a college of education to support practitioners’ ongoing professional development and to inform teacher education practices around technology at the college. A Teacher Inquiry Group (TIG) consisting of a group of classroom teachers and other school and district personnel, along with teacher education faculty members, met over a two year period to study, share, and expand best practices for integrating technology into K-8 and college classrooms. Data gathered from TIG participants and others from the school district and college indicate that this collaboration has had a significant impact on both partner institutions and has great potential to widen that impact in the coming years.
