Abstract

This article describes how a teacher education faculty member engaged in a one-on-one technology mentoring relationship with a graduate student to help achieve the goals of a multicultural curriculum. The use of vignettes helps capture the real-life stories about the mentoring experience to illustrate the way in which technology supports the principles of multicultural education. When preservice teachers are given the opportunity to observe effective uses of instructional technology modeled by university faculty, they are better able to understand the benefits that technology can have on culturally supportive teaching environments. The results suggest that the case of mentoring supported by a graduate student can help a faculty member promote the principles of multicultural education through the infusion of technology.
