Teaching and learning as we know it is vastly different from the experiences of most academics. However, educators have the duty to prepare students for a world where the dissemination of information is changing from that of words on paper to digital information disseminated electronically and a culture of classroom community that is no longer based on face-to-face communication but one where the predominance of computer-based discussion boards and “Blogs” exists. Keeping up with technology is a non-negotiable in teacher education courses. Questions remain as to whether professors are prepared to keep up with technology and ultimately prepare pre-service teachers. During this interactive session, participants will discuss issues related to the use of technology in teacher preparation and the implications of various computer technology on teaching and learning pedagogy.
