Abstract: Every new PK-12 teacher should learn how to select and use the most appropriate technology tools so they can become proficient in teaching with technology upon entry into the field. The 2017 United States Department of Education National Educational Technology Plan states that a one-shot approach (e.g., a single course in a teacher preparation program) to address educational technology in preparation programs is not appropriate for supporting teacher candidates to effectively use technology in their teaching, and that technology infusion at a program-deep and program-wide level would be more appropriate. This panel presentation will define technology infusion and identify action steps for preparation programs to consider. Panelists will discuss aspects of change including curriculum design, faculty development, clinical practice, teacher induction, and systemic planning and readiness of leadership.
