Abstract

This paper reports the pilot portion of a planned longitudinal study that will follow preservice teachers from the time they took the technology courses through their first years of teaching. The pilot study collected their thoughts and reflections at the point when they finished the first two courses in the three technology course sequence, investigating how prepared these future teachers felt they could use technology in classrooms, and how they viewed the effectiveness of the technology program. The findings indicated they were confident in their abilities to use technologies and developing an optimistic vision of the integration of technology into the curriculum. They also had positive evaluation of the technology program. Moreover, they hoped to have more experiences in which technology integration in teaching and learning was modeled for them.
