Very often, teachers are the key to the successful adoption and proliferation of education technology inside and outside the classroom. So how are Schools of Education -- the training ground for teachers -- helping to prepare the 21st century teacher to recognize and take advantage of the benefits ed tech has to offer? Or better yet:
What is the role education tech plays in teacher preparation programs at schools of ed around the country? How are innovative teacher preparation programs infusing ed tech into the preparation curriculum: by partnering with ed tech firms; fostering edtech entrepreneurship among their own students; residency programs? What is the stance of Schools of Education concerning ed tech adoption and implementation? Come out and hear the answer to these questions from esteemed panelists:
