Abstract

University based teacher education programs are slowly beginning to catch up to other professional programs that use modern digital tools to prepare students to enter professional fields. This discussion looks at how one teacher education program reached the conclusion that students and faculty would use notebook computers. Frequently referred to as one-to-one initiatives, there is ample evidence that Penn State College of Education's program is not another false summit in the pursuit to have technology transform teaching and learning.
