TeacherEducation Making Change for Digital Age Instruction
Teacher Education in a Digital Age Education Education Education
Todays future teachers, for the most part, are digitalnatives, individuals who grew up with technology as apart of their personal lives but not their educationallives. Even though our future teachers are digitalnatives, their learning experiences in k - 12 have notincluded integrated digital age instruction orcontemporary technologies but rather, traditionaleducation that requires text based, rote responselearning without technology.
It is difficult for future teachers to imagine teaching environments where allstudents have mobile tablets for learning such as the Apple ipad. The ideathat their students may be located at a distance is not part of their idea ofwhat they will do as a teacher. Again, students own learning experiencesdid not include integrated technology for teaching and learning. It isimportant then, that teacher education programs can deliver theirinstruction using contemporary technologies to model for new teachers what21st century teaching looks like, technology integrated, often offered at adistance and student rather than teacher centered.
