Today's pre-service teachers are expected to possess an ever-expanding array of skills that they can bring to bear within their classroom. One of these skills is the ability to make productive use of technology in their planning and preparation of daily lessons, as well as to integrate technology into the teaching and learning of their students. Many school districts now include these skills as part of their application forms and hiring processes. This study examines the methods employed by one University pre-service teacher education program over a two-year period at every level of their program to do this. The study focused on each different practicum level, tracking students as they progressed through their program. Using consultation with field teachers and faculty members active in the area of classroom technology integration, as well as drawing upon current research in pre-service teacher technology education, modifications to the current programs were suggested and tested.
