Abstract. Educators need to prepare students for citizenship in a global society by creating an environment in which global awareness and attitudes can be learned. This study examined the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to facilitate knowledge exchange and communication between pre/in-service teachers in teacher preparation program in universities in three countries: the United States, England, and Taiwan. The purposes were (1) to increase teachers' awareness of globalization and prepare them to develop instruction in globalization in their classrooms, (2) to determine the feasibility of ICTs for collaboration between two countries, and (3) to assess use of ICTs (blogs, wikis, Google tools and digital story telling). The findings revealed participants gained important perspectives on global education, learned strategies to integrate global concepts into curriculum and instruction, and developed ICT skills for collaboration.
