This article reports the results of a study that investigated the needs and concerns of first-year teachers including the problems they encountered, the support they received, and the degree to which they felt prepared to use technology. Beginning teachers participating in the study reported that: (a) access to computer resources was a major problem; (b) support for technology varied greatly from school to school; (c) their preparation to teach with technology lagged behind their preparation for other instructional strategies; and (d) student teaching had a minimal impact on their preparation to teach with computers. Findings of the study are consistent with the mounting evidence that beginning teachers are not being adequately prepared to teach with technology. The authors recommend increased efforts to integrate technology into preservice courses and field experiences. They further recommend the need for research that documents specifics of current practices, levels of preparation, and approaches that promote effective implementation of technology by beginning teachers.
