A group of teacher educators researched their implementation of technology while trying to remain consonant with their philosophical frameworks. Four themes cut across the collected narratives. Commitment toward change describes the background attitudes and beliefs that propelled them to explore changes to their practice. Obstacles to using technology involved challenges in the teaching and learning environments. Struggles in using technology within instructional contexts highlights shared pedagogical concerns. Finally, attitudes toward technology use, outlines shifting understandings and their effect on their attitudes as teacher educators. Three conclusions emerged from the study. A match between the use of technology and the goals of instruction was necessary. Technology tended to make tasks more complicated, limiting the ability to incorporate technology into teaching. Perhaps more important than the exploration of technology as an instructional tool, however, was the insight gained into their own philosophies of teaching and learning through participation in the narrative of collaboration, and the ability to submit self-narratives for discussion by groups of colleagues.
