This study explores preservice teachers' "pedagogical perspectives" of ICTs in their future classrooms as a way of understanding the students' conceptualizations with regards to ICT. The guiding assumption of this study is that preservice teachers "pedagogical perspectives" about ICTs can facilitate or hinder a critical incorporation of educational technologies in schools. Using qualitative methods, data was collected from three sources: 1) Focus groups of preservice teachers enrolled in a required educational technology course at two university campuses, 2) Semi-structured interviews of preservice teacher participants selected as a non-random, purposeful sample, and 3) Visual artifacts to explore pedagogical perspectives of future classrooms. Viewing this data with a critical lens using Foucault's notions of Technologies of the Self and Bourdieu's ideas of cultural capital yielded knowledge of preservice teachers decisions about integrating ICTs for meaningful teaching and learning.
