Abstract

Schools of education are experiencing both increased pressure and support to prepare teacher candidates for the effective and innovative integration of technologies such as laptops to support student learning. The Academic Technology Initiative (ATI) at a large northeastern university addressed deficiencies in infrastructure and provided support and resources for students and faculty. Does the removal of access and infrastructure barriers foster progress with regard to technology integration and faculty technology modeling? Analysis of the ATI Study data, including interview instruments, may help inform new technology strategies at both this and other universities designing such programs. We expect to identify new barriers and limitations that hold important implications for the future of the Initiative and for the future of teacher preparation programs in general.
