Abstract

Abstract: In recent years, institutions of higher education have begun to invest heavily in dynamic technological change by creating environments in which both faculty and students use their own laptop computers in the classroom. Among the early initiatives to require the use of laptops in teacher education by faculty and students in classrooms is the Laptop Initiative for Future Educators (LIFE) in the College of Education at the University of Texas at Austin. Panel participants will discuss findings from recent research studies conducted on the program that provide insights into the experiences of faculty, students, and administrators in a ubiquitous computing environment and the ways the infusion of technology has changed teaching practices of faculty, provided more authentic experiences for students, and created new requirements for administrative and technical support. The panel discussion will be particularly helpful to other teacher preparation programs considering similar initiatives.
