Analysis of technology literature consistently reveals that software is commonly designed without a foundation on learning theory (Ely, Foley, Freeman, & Scheel, 1992; Reeves, 1995). Within teacher education, however, there are some software developers who rely heavily on theories of case-based learning. In this paper, we analyze the theoretical underpinnings of three case-based software packages and consider the implications that case-based learning theories have for software design. Last, we report the findings from a 16 week investigation in which preservice elementary literacy teachers used case-based software to increase their knowledge of children's literacy abilities.
