Abstract

Analyzing data gathered from pre- and post-surveys administered during the first year of the implementation, the researchers investigated parents' perceptions and concerns of the 1:1 laptop initiative in a high school context and its implication for the teacher education. Surprisingly, teachers' different beliefs in technology integration and varying levels of TPACK was found to be parents' biggest concerns. Implications for the teacher education are discussed in the paper, as well as suggestions for teacher educators to better prepare pre-service teachers for more productive parent-teacher partnerships.
