The national Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) standards include a more integrated approach to teaching pre-service teachers about technology. This study investigated the preparedness for technology integration of 198 teacher educators within nationally recognized PETE programs. The study used survey research design to identify current technologies used, analyze current level of technology proficiency and integration, identify factors that aid or hinder technology infusion. Roger‘s Diffusion Theory and the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge Framework were used as theoretical guides. Results indicated low proficiency and integration levels. Further, the level of proficiency predicted integration levels significantly. The results suggest that both the national and regional associations as well as PETE administrators should explore various professional development models in using technology as well as teaching effective teaching strategies related to technology.
