Abstract

The goal of our four-year Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology Grant (Crossroads) was to prepare technologically proficient teachers to teach in urban classrooms by addressing the intersection of content, pedagogy, and technology. One of the grant's five objectives was, “To expand the efforts of standards-based technology integration training and evaluation to prepare pre-service teachers to use advanced technology to ensure all students meet challenging state and local academic achievement standards.” This paper will chronicle four-year efforts to prepare teachers in alternative initial preparation programs at the graduate level in the core subject areas, middle/secondary focus.
