A one-to-one laptop initiative at the College of Education at the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UH) is attempting to immerse both faculty and teacher preparation students in technology to make the tools part of their everyday practice. However, the new challenges faculty face due to the laptops could potentially undermine the initiative’s success. In order to understand and support teacher preparation faculty in their technology integration efforts, this study examined how UH elementary and secondary faculty differ in their support of a laptop initiative. Quantitative results indicate elementary faculty supported the initiative more strongly than secondary faculty. Qualitative results reflected possible differences in motivations for support.
