Abstract

Experiences and Expectations of Preservice Teachers in the Republic of Ireland with regard to Information and Communications Technologies in Education. This study seeks to examine possible links between the early experiences of preservice teachers of English and Mathematics with technology both within and outside the formal education system and their present attitudes to and expectations of the use of ICTs in education. The research is both qualitative and quantitative in approach and includes the use of web generated data and 'technology autobiographies'. It is posited that differences will occur between the two disciplines and between 'heavy' and 'light' users of technology.
