This paper describes one method used to evaluate a program designed to prepare teachers to integrate technology into the classroom so that children will become capable and confident users of technology. The method observed involved in-depth training conducted outside of teachers' school districts via the Teacher Leadership Program sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in Washington state. A quasi-experimental evaluation method was used. Results showed significant improvements in teachers' computer attitudes, self-efficacy, and experience measured on a pre to post test basis. Responses on post-test only factors indicated that: (a) school districts did not contribute significantly to participant's technology infusion efforts; (b) teachers described themselves as collaborative, mentoring, confident integrators of technology, and (c) teachers perceived that student learning was being positively impacted.
