Abstract

This article describes the dilemmas school districts and colleges of education are facing as they move toward training both veteran and new teachers to integrate technology as a teaching/learning tool in their classrooms. It outlines the resistance of many schools, colleges, and departments of education to embrace technological applications into their methods coursework. An overview of what is needed to overcome such resistance is discussed. The manuscript concludes with a description of an innovative field-based teacher preparation program that infuses the use of technology into its teacher preparation program. This three-year-old program was collaboratively designed and implemented by a team of classroom teachers, administrators, community representatives, and university faculty as the first step toward systemic educational reform.
