Abstract

The method by which student teachers at the University of Calgary are
prepared to meet technology requirements for teacher certification has been made
obsolete by the introduction of a new inquiry-based teacher education program.
Combined with a new school curriculum, which requires the seamless integration of
technology into core subject areas, this has prompted the need to rethink the technology
aspect of the teacher education program. A needs assessment based on the new Alberta
curriculum was conducted to generate a technology profile of student teachers entering
the new program, and to facilitate selecting appropriate means to integrate technology
within it.
