While many research efforts focus on the integration of technologies into teacher classroom instruction, few by comparison portray technology use from practicing teachers' standpoints. Therefore, questions remain about what technologies teachers say are commonly found in their classrooms, how these technologies are being utilized for instructional purposes, and what would help pre-service teachers better anticipate classroom realities. This paper presents findings obtained from a study of middle- and secondary school teachers in a Midwestern urban school community. Skills and capabilities these teachers advised for pre-service teachers ranged from office productivity applications to storyboarding digital projects and are summarized in a table. The insights offered by these teachers into the skills and capabilities they advise pre-service teachers to develop offer fresh perspectives that can help teacher education and professional development programs better prepare pre-service teachers to deal with the technologies and issues they can expect to face in their future classrooms.
