The technological changes taking place in society have implications that reverberate throughout entire social systems. In education, for instance, institutions of higher learning and other organizations that represent academia struggle with devising optimal methods for implementing technology meaningfully, just as do teacher preparation programs and practicing and preservice teachers. Indeed, as more and more parents clamor for meaningful educational technology experiences for their children in the classroom, those who research the work teachers do and those who prepare them to do this work must also devise ways to support teachers as they incorporate the use of technology into this work. Programs such as the Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT, 1997) are designed to address these issues, but the work is far from complete.
