Abstract

Teacher educators have commonly used Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) as a proxy measure to assess technology integration abilities among preservice teachers. But, TPACK measurement tools to date cannot predict or assess preservice teachers’ application of their technology integration knowledge. Given the intricacy and complexity of real school circumstances, we aim to devise an assessment protocol that will consider the contextual factors and subjective norms that influence teacher candidates’ attitudes and intentions to integrate technology. This research study documents the initial step of the development of a survey instrument that will use the theory of planned behavior (TPB) as a foundation, the gathering of teacher candidates’ beliefs about attitudes, normative referents, and control factors related to their use of technology for teaching and learning in their future classrooms. We anticipate combining TPACK growth with these additional factors might produce a more comprehensive picture of teacher candidates’ future use of technology.
