Abstract

Teacher preparation has emerged as a critical factor in the effective use of new technologies in education. Information technology investments may not pay off unless future teachers are given the opportunity to become technology-proficient educators. This study presents a theoretical framework for implementing technology innovation through a cohort model. Results from interviews of the first year's participants, and the lessons learned from their efforts are reported. Findings clearly indicate that structure and ownership are essential ingredients to producing a viable and collaborative cohort model and that the power of technology integration can be realized through collaboration.
