Abstract: Given the challenges that preservice teacher education faces today, the Preparing Tomorrow’s Teachers to use Technology (PT3) program was created to develop a nationwide video database to bridge the gap between the theory and the practice of integrating technology in the classroom. This paper provides a general overview of the case instruction approach, how this methodology has been evolving from a print form to a multimedia format, in particular the case of video. The integration of video and instruction is evident in the use of video cases, which have served as a tool to improve the preservice teachers’ preparation to use technology within the classroom context.
