Advancing teacher preparation to full adoption of technology infusion is no small undertaking.
Written by 20 experts in the teacher preparation field, Championing Technology Infusion in Teacher Preparation provides research- and practice-based direction for teacher preparation faculty, administrators, PK-12 school partners and other stakeholders who support programwide technology infusion in teacher preparation.
Such organizational change involves almost every individual and system involved in teacher preparation. Topics addressed include: systemic planning and readiness of college-level leadership; programwide, iterative candidate experiences across courses and clinical work; technology use and expectations for teachers and students in PK-12 settings; strategies to support induction of new teachers in PK-12 settings; models for effective candidate and program evaluation; and much more. This book will help leaders and teacher educators in preparation programs plan and support the developmental needs of teacher candidates as they learn how to teach with technology.
With action steps and "getting started resources" in each chapter, the book is well-adapted for study and planning by collaborative leadership teams at colleges and schools of education.
