National organizations, federal policy and academic standards all call for technology to be integrated into K-12 classrooms in ways that are likely to influence student achievement. While access to technology is at an all-time high, research on technology use still indicates that teachers do not integrate technology effectively. This chapter focuses on preparing pre-service teachers to integrate technology into their classroom. We present a synthesis of literature on technology in teacher education programs as well as findings from a research study on pre-service teacher’s shifting perceptions of technology integration over approximately a year. Lastly, we provide implications for future research studies regarding the influence of teacher education programs on pre-service teachers’ technology integration development.
