Abstract

Education is radically changing with the dawn of the information age, where the ability to access, analyze, and manipulate information is a basic survival skill. To become more technologically adept, elementary and secondary schools must provide technical training to their students. However, trained students are the result of trained professionals. Recognizing the burgeoning need to provide skilled professionals, institutions of teacher education are integrating educational technology programs in preservice education.

This review of the literature reports on technology implementation at teacher training institutions where educational technology is being infused into the preservice curriculum through adherence to guidelines from ISTE and NCATE. Course content consisting primarily of computer and media is taught by faculty who must overcome barriers to their technical illiteracy. Best practice models of technology integration are formed by student-centered learning situations that involve constructivism and collaboration.
