Supporting Technology Integration within a Teacher Education System


Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 31, Number 4, ISSN 0735-6331


The purpose of this case study was to examine a teacher education system relative to the degree of performance support for the use of technology to support learning. Performance support was measured by the presence of factors such as clear expectations, feedback, tools, rewards, incentives, motivation, capacity, skills, and knowledge within the system. Major stakeholders within the teacher education system at the target institution included teacher education faculty, teacher education students, and cooperating teachers in local schools. While results were specifically interpreted relative to the requirements of teacher education students, several areas of performance support were found to be required within and across stakeholder groups. Results of the study are discussed with a particular focus on the degree of alignment of supports across the system. Recommendations for the allocation of system resources related to technology integration are also discussed.
