Technology integration in teacher education is occurring at an unprecedented pace. Technorealism is desperately needed in teacher education programs to help ameliorate the mad rush to computer technology integration for its own sake. Technorealism offers a balanced and "rational" approach to the latest technologies and the resulting changes in thoughts as well as actions. The technorealism approach in teacher education suggests the integration of technology that can facilitate "powerful" approaches to teaching and learning including meaningful, creative, challenging, inquiry-based, and active applications. The article suggests the integration of seven principles of technorealism in teacher education.
