The purpose of this research was to examine the benefits of one-on-one mentoring for technology coaches and teacher preparation faculty as they learned to use technology. Participants included 33 teacher preparation faculty and 14 technology coaches, teacher education majors. The technology coaches worked with the faculty members in their offices and classrooms as they learned to use technology for their personal benefit and to integrate technology into their teaching. Interviews and observations indicated that coaches as well as faculty members gained in their knowledge of technology.
