We employed qualitative approaches to investigate the influence of using information technology on ten preservice teachers' professional growth across three semesters of their program. This study points out that the use of technology impacted the participants in Syracuse University's PT3 project in different ways. The effective use of technology helped all participants broaden their content knowledge, their understanding of pedagogical issues, and their personal meaning of inclusive education. Moreover, when some participants critically reflected on their own teaching with technology, they began to develop an identity as a teacher and a sense of pride. The most impressive finding is that more than half of the participants began to develop and demonstrate leadership potential, from showing and supporting to teaching their host teachers how to innovatively integrate technology into classroom learning. The implications for teacher education programs and future research are discussed.
