Abstract

Preservice education is in the midst of a long-awaited and muchneeded renewal, spurred by reform at the national, state, and local levels and the availability of funds to jump-start curricular restructuring. Since 1999, more than 400 demonstration projects have been awarded under the federal government's Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology Initiative. San Diego State University's Learning Through CyberApprenticeship (LTCA), part of the first cohort of grantees, is built around a simple but challenging premise: to establish and grow a "best practices" structure that calls for preservice teachers enrolled in our "stand-alone" technology course (EdTec 470) to work directly with technologically skilled teachers in the field-creating instructional units or lessons for immediate classroom use. This article illustrates how LTCA and EdTec 470 reflect the new look of preservice education in California.
