Abstract:In this virtual session, two leaders from a Teacher Education Internship Program in California will explain the state's mandates for teacher preparation programs as they relate to technology. Specifically, the presenters will provide an introduction to California's Level 1 and Level 2 Technology Standards, explaining how the Level 1 Standards focus upon how the K12 teacher utilizes technology to promote teaching/learning (and are addressed in the teacher candidate’s “preliminary” credential program) and how the Level 2 Standards focus upon how K12 teachers can teach their students how to use technology (and are addressed in the novice teacher’s “induction” program). Additionally, the presenters will share a detailed syllabus that shows how one teacher preparation program in Southern California has designed an innovative program to address these standards. In this context, the presenters will talk about University/K-12 Partnerships and the use of technology in K-12 classrooms (including the issue of access).
