This article uncovers changes that occurred in preservice teachers' thinking about and use of technology infusion and its role in student learning. It reports on findings from a two-year evaluation study of a preservice teacher technology in-fusion project in which teams of teacher educators and K-12 teachers collaborated to infuse technology in their respective teaching contexts, and to create links between these contexts. Each team created (a) hands-on experiences with computer technology to support constructivist teaching, (b) two-way interactive videoconferencing between college courses and K-12 classrooms, and (c) field experiences in technology rich classrooms. Based on analysis of survey and focus group data, classroom observations, and analysis of preservice teachers' work, findings indicated that preservice teachers changed their views of technology infusion from thinking that they would teach and learn about technology to thinking they would use technology to support student learning. Project design features, as well as implications for future practice, are discussed.
