Abstract

This research focuses on how pre-service educators (PSEs) view, consider, and ultimately implement digital literacy as an approach in classrooms. The participants are PSEs pursuing their undergraduate teaching degree and are enrolled in the Educational Learning Technology course (EDLT), called Integrating Technology with Teaching (EDLT 368) offered by the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at New Mexico State University, USA. The EDLT 368 students begin the course by completing a survey on current comfort and attitude of technology. Throughout the semester, PSE are introduced to various technologies that can be used for educational support. They will observe current classrooms using technology, and reflect upon how they can improve or add technology to meet educational objectives. They will then have an opportunity to test their own thematic units when they student-teach their lessons.
