Abstract

Abstract. This paper reports on initiatives to restructure preservice teachers' experiences to support the integration of technology through creative samples of basic, integrated technology applications. Methods courses need to integrate technology within current curricular plans in order to raise preservice teachers' expectancies, values, and self-perceptions in relation to successful technology integration. Implementing changes in current teacher education curriculum poses challenges to educators and technology coordinators. One ongoing project involves the use of basic integrated software applications applied for younger students' use and creation in motivational ways. The article concludes with a discussion of outcomes obtained thus far and future directions that we envision for our integration samples.
