Zinger, Doron; Naranjo, Ashley; Amador, Isabel; Gilbertson, Nicole; Warschauer, Mark – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2017
Incorporating technology in classrooms to promote student learning is an ongoing instructional challenge. Teacher professional development (PD) is a central component of teacher education to support student use of technology and can improve student learning, but PD has had mixed results. In this study, researchers investigated a PD program…

Slykhuis, David A.; Martin-Hansen, Lisa; Thomas, Christine D.; Barbato, Steven – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
Most people know STEM as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Many conversations have taken place about the need to recruit students into STEM fields and STEM careers. As educators work to that end, we find that there is a need to examine how STEM is perceived and practiced by our students and teachers. In the past, educators have…
