This survey study explores a graduate school level course on integrating educational technology in L2 classrooms in a teacher education program at two schools. One is a large university in an urban setting, while the other is a small private college in a suburban neighborhood. Both courses were taught by the same instructor providing the same course content. The study sought to understand the needs of the teachers in their efforts to integrate educational technology in language learning classrooms and how those needs differed depending on their teaching environments such as the program type, grade level, and the students in their classes.
Through survey analysis as well as follow-up interviews, the study looks at the teachers' expectations in learning to use educational technology, how to meet those expectations, and how to better meet the needs of pre-service and in-service teachers. The study examines the recommendations provided by the survey participants for implementation in the course and to better understand the teachers' needs.
