Abstract

Increasingly, schools and colleges of education around the country are working to improve preservice student preparation in the area of technology. Research findings regarding the effectiveness of teacher preparation programs in preparing preservice teachers to use technology, however, are not very encouraging. A national survey of education majors indicated that only 29% of the graduates in Colleges of Education that offer some sort of educational computing course felt prepared to use computers for instruction (US Congress, 1988). A more recent survey indicated that progress in integrating technology into teacher education had been slow, although some exemplary programs exist. (US Congress, 1995). In general, preservice teachers still believe that they lack the necessary skills and experiences to use technology. One area for which they feel most unprepared is the integration of technology into the curriculum (Byrum & Cashman, 1993).
