Engaging Pre-service Science Teachers to Act as Active Designers of Technology Integration: A MAGDAIRE Framework
This article describes a case study, which conducted in the course to investigate the pre-service teachers’ changes in technology competency as well as reasoning on the interplays between technology, pedagogy, and content. The authors used the Modeled Analysis, Guided Development, Articulated Implementation, and Reflected Evaluation (MAGDAIRE) framework. The findings suggest that MAGDAIRE significantly improved the pre-service teachers’ technology competency levels. Moreover, MAGDAIRE facilitated the pre-service teachers’ critical reexamination of the affordances of Flash for their teaching practices from the views of subject matter selection, motivation empowerment, information presentation, activity design, and pedagogy transition.

Teachers' Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge and Learning Activity Types: Curriculum-based Technology Integration Reframed
In this article, the authors critically analyze extant approaches to technology integration in teaching. The authors argue that many current methods are technocentric, often omitting sufficient consideration of the dynamic and complex relationships among content, technology, pedagogy, and context. They recommend using the technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge (TPACK) framework as a way to think about effective technology integration.

In this study, the authors determine the efficacy of two-way videoconferencing to supervise pre-service special education teachers. Efficacy is determined by (a) assessing interobserver reliability between on-site and off-site observers and (b) evaluating the feasibility and practicality of the videoconferencing technology. Participants include two special education pre-service teachers and four university supervisors of practicum and student teaching experiences.

Using Alternative Lenses to Examine Effective Teachers’ Use of Technology with Low-Performing Students
Much of the literature on the use of technology with low-performing students can be seen as contradictory and limited, primarily because it examines technology use through a single lens: the technology itself.This study used two lenses—teachers’ instructional practices and the research on effective technology use—to examine the use of technology by effective teachers.In conclusion, examining the use of technology in the context of teachers’ instructional practices provides a fuller picture of the different roles technology can play to support the learning of low-performing students.

Are We There Yet?: The Power of Creating an Innovation Configuration Map on the Integration of Technology into Your Teacher Education Program
The incident from my earlier teaching career came to mind after listening to different comments made by colleagues in the college of education where I teach regarding the effective use of technology in our teacher education programs. I began to wonder if we were all operating from the same working definition when we talk about integrating technology into our teacher education program.

Reexamining the Practicum Placement: How to Leverage Technology to Prepare Preservice Teachers for the Demands of the 21st Century
While many factors are taken into account when identifying appropriate practicum placements, effective technology use by the classroom teacher is rarely considered. This is disconcerting given the recent emphasis on teacher technology preparation. The research described in this article studies 30 preservice teachers’ participation in a six-week virtual practicum.
