Preservice teachers graduating from education programs feel unprepared to integrate technology into their classrooms due to lack of modeling by university faculty and limited opportunities for observation of exemplary technology practices in internship classrooms. The Arizona State University West faculty, through a PT 3 Grant, is addressing this issue by providing workshops on integration of technology in instructional planning for cohort teams of ASUW preservice teachers and inservice mentor teachers. During the workshops, teams collaborated on developing Units of Practice integrating technology, which were jointly implemented in field placement classrooms. Workshops provided teams a variety of technology and technology resources that could be incorporated into unit and lesson planning including the Internet, digital cameras, Inspiration software and PowerPoint applications. Results indicated participants benefited greatly from the information and practical applications of the workshops. Teams demonstrated considerable skill growth for using various applications and substantial success in developing Internet skills.
