Show Details

Preparing preservice teachers with opportunities to engage with innovative technology may increase the likelihood that they will use technology in their elementary/middle school classrooms. Preservice teachers in an educational technology class learned how to use innovative technology prior to introducing students in the United States and/or Mexico to the technology. Preservice teachers took surveys and wrote reflections about their opinions of the effectiveness of the technology as an educational tool for science classrooms. opportunities

Teacher educators will have opportunities to engage with floor-robots and virtual reality headsets during this workshop presentation. Researchers will detail highlights from a service-learning trip to Mexico prior to engaging participants in hands-on learning opportunities.
