Abstract

The Teacher as Software Developer is an innovative program synthesizing technology instruction, curriculum content, and field experiences in teacher preparation. Since introducing this program in 1998, students have benefited from the transformation of technology instruction at our School of Education. Prior to 1998 there were, at best, good faith attempts at isolated versions of technology instruction. Technology instruction for the inexperienced pre-service undergraduate was a futile exercise in imagining what software would look like in a classroom. Through The Teacher as Software Developer program, technology instruction has become an agent and a catalyst for our undergraduate pre-service teachers learning about lesson planning, teaching, curriculum, and technology. This paper includes a description of the Teacher as Software Developer program and how it fits into the undergraduate curriculum for preparing teachers.
