Trainin, G. ad Friedrich, L. (2014). Technological pedagogical content knowledge in teacher preparation: Impact of coaching professional development and mobile devices. Paper accepted to the Annual Conference of the American Educational Research Association (Philadelphia).
This presentation explores the process of change for a teacher preparation program as it attempted to teach pre-service teachers how to integrate new technologies into instruction in elementary schools. The aim was to impact the instruction of preservice and inservice teachers in a way that would reach their current students. This study shows that it is possible to significantly increase the technological pedagogical content knowledge of pre-service teachers. This positive result is a clear indication that the approach of improving the quality of technology integration in Teacher Education, hand in hand with changes in technology integration in schools, had a multiplicative effect on outcomes!
