Abstract

Teacher education programs need to move teacher candidates beyond simple technology skill acquisition to more advanced levels where they apply teaching methods that facilitate technology integration in their classrooms. Teacher candidates are often introduced to technology training early in their programs where they are provided instruction that focuses primarily on software applications. This practice often leads to technology use that is isolated from content, methodology and pedagogy. Teacher candidates need technology training that supports student-centered integration in curriculum areas that can be replicated in their future classrooms. Using Project Learning Tree and environmental education (EE), provides candidates with an opportunity to work with standards based curriculum that crosses grade levels and content areas, promotes and supports the development of well planned technology-rich lessons and classroom activities while infusing EE into their daily lessons.
