Educators emphasize unit construction as an important part of teacher preparation. Technology-enhanced problem-based learning units are particularly exciting because they have the potential to involve students in complex, realistic problems that are both engaging and cognitively challenging. These units are difficult to develop, however, particularly for elementary education teacher candidates who often have limited content knowledge. The authors have enlisted arts and science faculty experts to participate as members of "development teams" to assist in the design of problem-based units in science and social studies. This collaboration produced units in which content is richer, problems are more complex, and resources are more substantive.
