Educators learning how to meaningfully integrate technology into their teaching practice will find resources and action plans to prepare them for today’s tech-infused lessons.

Advancing teacher preparation to full adoption of technology infusion is no small undertaking. Written by 20 experts in the teacher prep field, Championing Technology Infusion in Teacher Preparation provides research- and practice-based direction for faculty, administrators, PK-12 school partners and other stakeholders who support programwide technology infusion in teacher education programs. Such organizational change involves almost every individual and system involved in teacher preparation. 

Topics addressed include:

• Defining technology infusion and integration.
• Systemic planning and readiness of college-level leadership.
• Programwide, iterative candidate experiences across courses and clinical work.
• Technology use and expectations for teachers and students in PK-12 settings.
• Instructional design in teacher preparation programs to include integration of technology in face-to-face, blended and online PK-12 teaching and learning.
• Strategies to support induction of new teachers in PK-12 settings.
• Models for effective candidate and program evaluation.
• Roles for government agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in nationwide collaboration for technology infusion in teacher preparation.

This book will help administrators in colleges and schools of education as well as teacher educators in preparation programs support the developmental needs of teacher candidates as they learn how to teach with technology. With action steps and getting started resources in each chapter, the book is well-adapted for small group study and planning by collaborative leadership teams in colleges and schools of education. The book is also appropriate for the study of effective organizational change in education by graduate students.
