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…

Sheffield, Caroline C. – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
Interactive whiteboards (IWBs) are increasingly prevalent in U.S. classrooms. Yet, little is known about how this tool is being used to teach social studies. This case study through classroom observations, interviews, and student focus groups examines how two fifth-grade teachers use the IWB to teach U.S. history. The data indicate that when the…

McGee, Daniel; Moore-Russo, Deborah – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
A test project at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagüez used GeoGebra applets to promote the concept of multirepresentational fluency among high school mathematics preservice teachers. For this study, this fluency was defined as simultaneous awareness of all representations associated with a mathematical concept, as measured by the ability to…

Crook, Simon J.; Sharma, Manjula D.; Wilson, Rachel – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
Using a mixed-methods approach the authors compared the associated practices of senior physics teachers (n = 7) and students (n = 53) in a 1:1 laptop environment with those of senior biology teachers (n = 10) and students (n = 125) also in a 1:1 laptop environment, in seven high schools in Sydney, NSW, Australia. They found that the physics…

Carpenter, Jeffrey – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
Twitter has demonstrated potential to facilitate learning at the university level, and K-12 educators' use of the microblogging service Twitter to facilitate professional development appears to be on the rise. Research on microblogging as a part of teacher education is, however, limited. This paper investigates the use of Twitter by preservice…

Lewis, Carrie L. – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
Both preservice and in-service PK-12 teachers in the United States are expected to create a classroom environment that fosters the creation of digital citizens. However, it is unclear whether or not teacher education programs build this direct instruction, or any other method of introducing students to the International Society for Technology in…

Rhine, Steve; Harrington, Rachel; Olszewski, Brandon – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
The collision between a growing, inexperienced teaching force and students' algebra struggles should be one of great concern. A collaboration of four public and private universities in Oregon restructured mathematics methods courses for preservice teacher candidates by using the affordances of technology to counteract this loss of experience. Over…
