The focus on information technology in education has shifted towards curriculum integration. Consequently teacher education programs need to prepare graduates for teaching with IT. Graduates should possess both skills in the use of IT and belief in their capacity to integrate IT into teaching. Decisions about course design might be informed by a measure that is directly influenced by course changes and also indicates likely long term outcomes for teacher behavior. Self-efficacy beliefs can provide such a measure especially in the context of preparing teachers to teach with technology.
