Abstract

The information age challenges pre-service teacher education to change rapidly. This is the result of the catalytic impact of technology on the changes in society at large, and consequently on the changes in the role of learning and teaching in society. Therefore the challenge is not only that prospective teachers need to acquire the knowledge and skills to use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in education, they also need to learn a new approach to teaching and learning. In 1997 a national contest in the Netherlands challenged all Colleges of Education to put forward a proposal for the development and implementation of a new approach to teacher education, reflecting the needs of the information age. As a result two Colleges attained the status of 'Experimental College of Teacher Education'. In the four contributions of this panel the vision on education and the implementation after two years of experience are shared.
