the last years. But there are many obstacles to change concepts of traditional curricula for teacher
education, to train the teacher educators, to implement new media at the university, and so on. The
necessarity of educating teachers and teacher students for using computers and the internet for
educational purposes became also aware by the government. There are many interested teachers but there
are not enough teacher educators to face that challenge. Media in general and television especially are
rarely used in German schools. German teachers mostly think of electronic media as a virus which is
infecting the children with not good ideas so they try to keep them out of their classroom. Only the
computer and the internet had changed some teachers mind. The pressure of using computers in every day
life and in all areas of economy is now reaching the schools. Now schools are equipped with computers
and internet access but teachers are rarely prepared to pedagogical settings for the use of its.
