Future teachers need to be exposed to more than just a computer literacy course. As technology use expands in schools it is important for teacher education programs to implement technology into all program courses in an effort to train technology literate teachers. The purposes of this study were to expose preservice students to the use of technology in an activity based course and to gain insight into their attitudes and perspectives toward technology implementation. Technology implementation included electronic mail, videotaping, and use of the Internet. Students (n=40) used technology for a 16-week semester. Upon conclusion of the semester students' attitudes were measured through completion of an attitudinal survey, electronic communications, and focus group interviews.
