Abstract

Oksika, Johnson, and Buteau (2009) state that incorporating new pedagogy into teaching is attributed to the instructor’s feelings about themselves and what they have previously learned. In other words, if one has a positive attitude towards technology, one will be more inclined to incorporate it into one’s teaching. This chapter discusses changed attitudes and mindsets toward technology, particularly in the mindsets of the secondary education faculty in the author’s college. Because technology has been integrated in the college’s secondary education courses, the faculty, including the author of this chapter, had to learn about new technologies to teach as well as model to their students. This chapter also discusses the author’s personal journey into using technology as a pedagogical tool. Various technology methods taught to secondary education students will be highlighted, with a concluding sampling of students’ ideas to illustrate the creative thinking that technology integration can produce.
