Abstract

The purpose of this investigation is to establish a snapshot of the extent one teacher educator program is preparing its teacher candidates to be ready, knowledgeable, and empowered to use technological components in their future classroom. A self-assessment inventory, online course discussion boards, and a specific audio/visual media product were used to determine teacher candidate perceptions of efficacy and preparedness for technological components in their future classrooms. This investigation is meant to stimulate a teacher educator program to evaluate its curriculum in regards to technological components taught to future teachers.
