Technology Learning Principles for Preservice and In-Service Teacher Education

My experience has been that most teachers want technology training to focus on their subject matter. They want to take something out of the training that they can implement in their classroom that fits with their curriculum. Often we provide some basic training, but don't allow teachers the time to use the hardware or software. If we want teachers to use technology effectively, we need to tailor our training to fit their needs. The training also needs to be constantly updated so we can continually meet the needs of the teachers. We need to keep the training relevant to what is going on in the classroom.
