Abstract

** Invited as a paper from SITE 2009 ** The Team-Taught Cohort Model for preparing pre-service teachers to use technology in their classrooms involves a “block” of courses in combination with a field experience in the second year of a four-year university program. Pre-service teachers are placed in cohort groups that participate in intensive coursework in curriculum, instruction, assessment, classroom management, and technology integration in balance with 18 full days of practicum experience. This model provides pre-service teachers with an authentic opportunity to integrate technology into a unit based on strong educational theory and current research, and an opportunity to spend quality time in a middle or high school classroom with a mentor teacher while being supported and coached by a team of university faculty members in a technology-rich environment. Four surveys were administered generating seven measures for each group of students. Effect Sizes measured using Cohen’s d ranged from 0.43 to 2.14 across the four semesters of students in the Team-Taught Cohort Model and from 0.24 to 1.12 across the two semesters of the comparison group in the Traditional Model. Results indicate that the Team-Taught Cohort Model is successful in increasing pre-service teachers’ competence and confidence in technology integration in the classroom.
