In 2001, the Consortium for Outstanding Achievement in Teaching with Technology (COATT), a partnership of Michigan universities with teacher preparation programs, was awarded a U.S. Department of Education "Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers for Technology" (PT3) catalyst grant. Four years later, evaluation findings show mixed results, with many successes but not the level of impact originally envisioned by the project's creators. In this retrospective, challenges of scale, politics, and resistance are reviewed, along with the successes that resulted from changing "hearts and minds." While long-term policy mandates were put in place that will continue to impact the state's teacher preparation programs, it was individual dedication and passion that most impacted students in preservice programs.
