Within the framework of Bilkent University-Iowa State University Student Teacher Internship Program funded by the Fulbright Association, a series of technology seminars are held by ISU graduate students to foster a new breed of technology-using secondary education teachers in Turkey. In addition to their six-week internship experience in Iowa High Schools, the interns get acquainted with some of the latest educational applications with hands-on activities in the form of 4-week-long workshops. The overall aim of the workshops is to familiarize the student-teachers with what is available and provide some insights into how they can use these in their own teaching, i.e., inspire them to see that the enormous potential of the new digital tools is realizable in meaningful products and activities for their students. The major topics of the sessions are video and digital still image shooting and editing, sound recording and editing, and DVD creation where all the skills practiced are combined.
