Hello all,

My name is Mike Taylor, and I am a doctoral student outside Philadelphia. The emphasis of my studies is the technology education of current and pre-service teachers. I have had the pleasure of being shoe-horned into the schedule of teachers in a K-12 environment, trying to improve their technology skills and working with pre-service teachers in the classroom helping them to learn the basic technology skills they need to function in the classroom, adjusting their attitudes from " I'll use it if I can work it in." to not even hesitating to use the technology to improve their's or their students learning experience.

I would like to see how we can begin to move towards the infusion of technology into educational foundation classes, so it can be thought of as a synergistic part of educational theory as opposed to an adjunct to be used as an add on to basic theory.
