Abstract

Teacher education programs prepare novice teachers through university coursework and internship experiences in K-12 schools. Internships afford teacher candidates the opportunity to experiment with instructional strategies learned in the university classroom through authentic practice in schools. All too often, in regards to teaching with technology, there are barriers in the way. These barriers affect teacher candidate’s first lived experiences in the classroom and profoundly impact their understandings of teaching and the role of technology. This research study was designed to build a stronger understanding of technology integration during the internship experience, what transfers from university preparation into actual teaching practice. Data were collected through teacher candidate surveys, supervisor observation checklists and focus groups. Findings will inform teacher education programs as they build stronger and more worthwhile technology opportunities for their students.
