Abstract: This presentation reports on year three results and on going activities of a federally funded Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) grant. The goal of "Integrating Technology into Teacher Education in Appalachia" was the restructuring of the teacher education curriculum to ensure that all graduates met appropriate National Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T). This presentation describes the comprehensive curriculum mapping process that has been implemented in order to accomplish our goal of using curriculum data to provide accountability and form the basis for sound decision making. This includes the use of a unique web-based database system to implement curricular changes, analyze curriculum and standards alignment and document student performance. The presentation also demonstrates the curriculum mapping software and the results of curriculum analysis.
