Faculty and administrators in teacher preparation programs face the dilemma of preparing teachers for an unknown, but increasingly technological classroom. We present four possible solutions to the problem of preparing teachers for the future and using technology in classrooms: single course, technology infusion, student performance, and case based. Each of these approaches has both positive and negative aspects. As an example of one college's solution, we present a case of the preparation and implementation of technology in teacher preparation at Michigan State University. We conclude that it is imperative that faculty and administrators of teacher preparation programs learn about modern information and communication technology and incorporate them into their programs in meaningful ways.
