In response to the increasing need to prepare teachers for technology integration in their classrooms, Wayne State University's (WSU) College of Education developed a PT3-funded program entitled "Teachers on the Go". The program provided Apple iBook laptops, software, and training to students and instructors. As a pilot program, it was critical to assess course implementation and initial outcomes to provide feedback to program staff. Evaluators from the WSU Center for Urban Studies employed qualitative and quantitative data collection methodologies, including classroom observations, focus group interviews with students and faculty, and a student on-line assessment survey. Instructors and students from five courses participated in evaluation efforts. Evaluators found that while the majority of students entered their PT3 courses with limited technology experience, most exited with valuable computer skills.
