Preparing pre-service teachers to be competent in using computers in the classroom has been a challenge due to the various platforms of computers currently in use in classrooms. The faculty at Northern Arizona University's College of Education wishing to fully prepare their future teachers to be technically savvy in their future classrooms, regardless of their district's choice of platform, designed and developed curriculum for a hybrid lab of both Macintosh and Windows-based computers. Students now enrolled in ETC 447: Computers in the Classroom are being taught in a hybrid lab with both Macintosh and Windows-based computers, which provides some unique challenges for the faculty in designing instruction and teaching within this environment. This brief paper is a study in progress and will detail and discusses the rationale, design, and instructional challenges that a hybrid teaching lab presents for both students and instructors.
