New Rules, New Roles: Technology Standards and Teacher Education
Educational Considerations Volume 34, Number 2, ISSN 0146-9282
The digital age is infiltrating colleges of education around the country, but while some faculty are jumping on the bandwagon and working hard to improve their own technological literacy and that of their students, other faculty are resistant, afraid that technology may "dehumanize" education. School districts around the country are investing millions of dollars in technology, but "...these investments are of little value unless the schools can employ teachers who are capable of making sound judgments about the use of technology and are able to employ it skillfully." Therefore, the technological literacy of faculty in teacher preparation programs is of high interest to administrators and teachers in K-12 schools who want to be able to assure parents that their children will receive relevant and meaningful instruction in a variety of innovative formats including technology. This article discusses two national initiatives which encourage or require colleges of education to increase teacher candidates' technological literacy followed by a discussion of the impact of technology integration on teacher practice.
