With the support of a Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Teach Technology (PT3) grant from the U.S. Department of Education, the authors, faculty members in the School of Education in a diverse urban state university, successfully used a training-of-trainers model to motivate and train its faculty to infuse technology into their methods classes. The model helped to facilitate the collaborative efforts of a cadre of dedicated faculty to produce technology-based lessons, implement them in their classes, and produce CD-ROMs that are both tutorials for other methods faculty and case studies. The lessons include an immigration database lesson in social studies methods, a heart-rate spreadsheet lesson in science methods, an historical newsletter lesson in content area reading methods, and WebQuests in a general methods course.
