Abstract: This research explored collaboration between school librarian candidates and teacher candidates as they worked to effectively integrate technology into curriculum. A study premise of the research is that effective technology use and integration is deficient; teachers may utilize technologies, but are not always knowledgeable in how to integrate effectively to improve teaching/student learning. As technologies increase in schools, it is critical learning opportunities are provided to help teachers meaningfully integrate technology. This study served to benefit researchers by gaining a better understanding of technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge needed to effectively integrate technology; how partnerships between school librarian candidates and teacher candidates impact lesson development, teaching, and technology integration; and contributes to literature in technology integration, instructional technology, teacher/librarian collaboration, and teacher education.
