Abstract

To adequately prepare preservice teachers to use technology in their own classrooms, teacher education programs must develop comprehensive models for technology integration that include meaningful uses of technology to improve and renew the teacher education curriculum. In addition, model K-12 sites must be fostered where preservice teachers can practice using technology to create active learning environments for students. Integrating technology effectively into teacher education courses and working collaboratively to create rich technology field experiences are both tremendous challenges for teacher education programs. Given the needs and challenges that both K-12 schools and teacher education programs face with respect to effective use of technology, it appears that both entities would benefit from collaborative work to address these needs. John Goodlad's theory of simultaneous renewal for colleges of education and K-12 schools provides a useful framework for this type of collaboration. This paper describes several strategies that faculty at Iowa State University have used to successfully integrate technology throughout the teacher education program and in K-12 classrooms.
