Abstract

To satisfy the demand for a technology literate workforce, students in the United States must receive computer instruction at an early age. Unfortunately, technology integration efforts are falling far short and state and federal agencies are beginning to hold schools accountable for infusing technology into curriculum. It is clear that schools are in need of programs that improve technology integration.

Mentor supported web-based training for K-12 teachers can improve technology integration in the classroom. The program focuses on benefits derived from combining mentorship and online training. A procedural manual for implementing such a program was developed and tested through the course of a nine-month pilot study. Results indicated that a diverse population of teachers can benefit from such a program.
