Understanding and Preparing Teachers of Millennial Learners
This presentation will examine the results of a *Technology Proficiency and Use* survey of over 200 pre-service teacher education students. This session will discuss results, data, and trends related to current levels of technology knowledge, fluency, and patterns of use. The researchers will classify fluency and comfort in unique categories including software, mobile communications, gaming, social networking, and prevalent secondary technology experience. A framework for developing a pre-service teacher education technology class designed to help prepare the knowledge, skill, and comfort of use technology tools for learning and engagement will be provided. Additionally, the session will feature strategies, tools, structures, and content suggested for preparing trans-millennial teachers to engage millennial students.
