It is widely acknowledged that it is important to teach a variety of technological skills to pre-service teachers so that they not only feel comfortable using the technology themselves but so that they can teach technology and the associated skills to their future students. This paper reports on the mapping of individual courses that make up the education programs at The University of Queensland. Results are interesting as anecdotal conversations with staff suggest that more technology is being taught than is reported in the course profiles. The results suggest that there are some positives in the teaching of technology in the current education courses.
