There have been research studies providing implications on how to design teacher training programs in order to promote technology integration in classroom settings. Although implications address best practices which may be used in teacher training, it has been difficult to determine the impact on long-term technology integration in a different context where there is minimal administrative support and limited technology access. Therefore, the purpose of this case study is to explore the impact of current best practices in teacher technology training in a school setting with modest technology access and support and minimal administrative leadership in technology integration. Data collection of the study is scheduled from October, 2007 through May, 2008. Preliminary data and study results will be presented at the March conference.
