Abstract

This paper describes the design of a digital technology course for pre-service teachers in social studies and English Language Arts. We first provide a brief literature review that highlights the need to support pre-service teachers in using technology in the classroom. We then explain the components of our course. Finally, we provide preliminary findings from end of class reflections from pre-service teachers that capture their diverse experiences in the course. Findings suggest that most pre-service teachers had not evaluated technology for classroom use. Therefore, more courses are needed that allow pre-service teachers to develop a critical eye towards technology use in the classroom.
