Abstract: Teacher Candidates are not well enough prepared to teach with technology. While the stand-alone technology class attempts to prepare teacher candidates to use technology, all teacher education faculty need to be competent in the use of technology. This will allow teacher candidates to experience technology in the context of their content area. Many teacher education faculty, however, are not well prepared for this challenge. The TETC professional development online course will assist teachers in gaining this competence.
