"I ain't gonna memorize no poem." This was the defiant statement of a fifth grader made to a teacher candidate during a field-experience technology project. Through the use of video cameras as a tool to assist students in their learning, this student changed his mind and became a star. At a public liberal arts university, teacher candidates use technology as an integral part of the curriculum and implement it into the real world of practice. Math Trails, video book commercials, WebQuests for Art History, and Palm Pilots for animated vocabulary are a few examples. This collaboration included authentic integration of technology into the curriculum, use of community resources, collaboration with experts in the content and teaching field, opportunity to work one-on-one with students using computers, research and evaluation of appropriate websites, expertise in creating an interactive instructional technology project, and opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of project with student usage.
