Abstract

This paper is a report on the findings of an action research project conducted during an undergraduate "Technology in Education" class for preservice teachers. The course was structured using a Constructivist approach and designed to incorporate principles of brain based and engaged learning. Technology competencies of students participating in the course were accessed using quantitative and qualitative analysis techniques. Findings indicate that students in the Constructivist course acquired proficiency in the use of technology and developed knowledge structures essential to the successful integration of technology into classroom practice.
