Intended to support the entire teacher preparation program, this text is designed to help teachers guide their students in learning with multiple information and communication technologies -- both existing and emerging. The text challenges thinking in ways that will stimulate interest, preparation, and continued learning in guiding students as they learn with technology. Great focus is placed on preparation of teaching content that develops a strong integrated knowledgebase about technology, teaching content with technology, and incorporating sound teaching and learning practices with technologies as integral learning tools.
