This study examines the impact of a professional development program in which a networked learning community approach was implemented to provide training and support for content-specific use of technology in mathematics education. Within six cohort groups, the study included 22 student teachers, 22 cooperating teachers, 7 university-level faculty, and 3 student teaching supervisors. Data were collected from pre and post surveys, journal entries, technology projects, and reflections in electronic portfolios. Findings show that over the course of the program the project participants significantly increased their confidence and competence in technology literacy as well as integrating technology into the teaching and learning of mathematics. The study demonstrates that an approach to professional development that encourages networking, mutual learning, and sharing of strategies and resources is an effective way to improve technology integration into mathematics education.
