This paper is a report on training provided for in-service teachers through a PT3 grant at a regional university in the south US. Teachers were trained using a new instructional design model that focuses on learning on a continuum and shifts activities from teacher-centered to student-centered. Technology was integrated at all levels of learning and multiple resources were made available to the teachers. Technology-rich Learning Units were created and implemented in local classrooms. Videotapes were obtained of portions of the implementation of the learning units and students response was positive, enthusiastic, and showed strong interest in having more lessons that used the computer. It was, however, clear that many experienced teachers needed as much help writing objectives that connected to standards as they did integrating technology into the learning environment.
