Preservice teachers at the University of North Texas are using PC complementary technologies in their courses and in their work with children. These students are being taught the use of Palm personal digital assistants and digital cameras in a course called Computers in Education. The preservice teachers are able to transfer what they have learned into their education methods courses, which include language arts and math. In their methods courses they integrate various types of technology into their assignments, giving the students practice at integrating technology, which is a skill they can use when they become an in-service teacher.
