We hypothesized that increasing the use of technology in college courses would lead to greater use of technology by pre-service teachers. We found barriers and facilitators on each level in increasing the use of technology in classrooms. We used this information to alter technology use in their college courses to help them develop the disposition to use technology in the future. Overall the program to scale up the use of technology from the college level to the K-12 level was successful. College faculty increased their use of technology in the classroom. Students of these faculty expressed feeling more competent, confident, and comfortable with the use of technology. In our PDS partnership, elementary teachers also increased their use of technology in the classroom. The combined outcomes of our increased training in technology use to faculty, in-service teachers, and pre-service teachers can then have the final effect of increasing the technological literacy of our public school.
