The purpose of this presentation is to describe how one college of education used curriculum mapping as the vehicle to infuse instructional technology into its entire curriculum. The project was part of a federally funded Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) grant. The primary goal of "Integrating Technology into Teacher Education in Appalachia" was the restructuring of the teacher education curriculum to insure that all graduates met appropriate National Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) and that the teacher education curriculum is aligned both horizontally and vertically to those standards. This presentation describes the comprehensive curriculum mapping process that has been implemented in order to accomplish our goal, including the use of a unique web-based database system to implement curricular changes, analyze curriculum and standards alignment, and document student performance.
