This article aims to provoke debate and discussion about teacher education futures, with particular reference to the interactions between knowledge and technology, within the teacher education community. The authors employed futures methodologies based on scenario creation. In these scenarios, the authors play out how and why changing versions of knowledge and their interactions with technology impact on teacher education. The authors note that in these scenarios, technology is primarily referred to in terms of its relationship to knowledge building and acquisition. They argued that the scenarios offer a dialectic between the influence of knowledge and that of technology. They also argue that these scenarios have a practical value in offering alternatives, encouraging debate.
