This qualitative study will examine the influence of technology-based internships on teachers’ instructional decision-making during their first year in the classroom. Teacher education programs offer preservice teachers several opportunities to observe and practice teaching through their field experiences, yet these authentic teaching opportunities rarely feature technology. Using a case study design, this study will explore the influence of a technology-based field experience, which satisfies many of the criteria established in innovation-adoption and professional development models, on teaching practice during the first year. Anticipated benefits of this study include gaining clarity about which elements of educational technology coursework teachers employ in their practice, observing which educational technologies teachers are using, and contributing to the body of research on best practices in technology and teacher education.
