Abstract

The traditional one-course technology training for pre-service teachers cannot serve the needs to prepare teachers to effectively use technology in K-12 classrooms. Integrating technology into methods courses helps to make technology meaningful for pre-service teachers. The field-based models provide real K-12 classroom contexts for pre-service teachers to learn and practice using technology in teaching. These approaches help pre-service teachers construct their own understanding of technology use in teaching and apply technology in different content areas or real classroom settings. Research studies reported favorable results of these approaches in building up pre-service teachers' attitudes, expectations, confidence, and proficiency in technology use. The problem-based approach also provides new opportunities for pre-service technology training. Trends for future research in pre-service teacher education are also discussed in the paper.
