Abstract: Teacher candidates take a Reading Methods course and a Health and Physical Education Methods course as part of their elementary program requirements. These teacher candidates are required to use technology resources throughout the course for assignments and development of lessons for teaching. Participants completed a pre and post survey that measured their use of basic computer and software applications and a survey that measured any changes in terms of technology competence (ISTE, 2003). Findings indicate that utilizing technology resources increased teacher candidates' technology competence scores in all three quarters of the study. Furthermore, the results of the study indicate that teacher candidates' scores improved from pre to post test on the computer and software use in the first two quarters of the study. These findings suggest that course activities that incorporate the use of technology increase teacher candidates' technology use and their technological confidence.
