Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Educational technology--Study and teaching (Higher)--Iowa; Student teachers--Iowa;
The purpose of this study was to assess and determine the current level of technology competencies in preservice teachers at the University of Northern Iowa (UNI). The Teacher Education Faculty at UNI developed and adopted the Preservice Teacher Technology Competencies (Appendix A), performance-based competencies modeled on several national standards documents. Preservice teachers at three different levels in the college of education program participated in this study.
This research was conducted to measure the proficiency of preservice teachers at UNI in their use of technology, specifically the educational and classroom use of technology. Measuring preservice teachers' ability to connect their knowledge of the technology to teaching and student learning will provide a foundation for developing an outstanding education program that teaches preservice teachers to implement technology that changes their style of teaching and their beliefs about educational technology.
