Abstract

In the new National Education Technology Plan from U.S. Department of Education Office of Educational Technology, a claim is made that school districts cannot consistently count on teacher educators to help new teachers develop their ability to teach with technology. This panel presentation examines five innovative approaches to addressing this concern: the development of professional identities, teacher educator technology competencies, creativity and transdisciplinary thinking, teacher educator workload when addressing technology in methods courses, and transfer to the field. Panelists will share research findings and implications for teacher education. Attendees will have the opportunity to brainstorm with panelists on how their programs make use of the ideas presented.
