Abstract

Schools, colleges, and departments of education (SCDEs) may be placed along a continuum in their integration of technology. The 1995 Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) report, Teachers & Technology: Making the Connection, spoke to one end of the continuum when it raised two important points that “technology is not central to the teacher preparation experience” and that “most technology instruction is teaching about technology not teaching with technology across the curriculum”.
