AbstractSurveys were conducted in elementary and secondary methods classes at a southeastern university to determine, among other things, what technology and types of technological activities students anticipated using in student teaching. Results from this first survey indicated that all students planned to use technology in student teaching. VCRs, CD players, computers, overhead projectors and TVs were the top anticipated technologies. PowerPoint and Word were selected as the most likely uses for technology. Students taking the initial survey were asked if they would participate in monthly follow up surveys during their student teaching to document what technology was actually used. Thirty-three elementary students and 28 secondary students agreed to participate. In follow up surveys, the majority of students indicated they were not using technology as much as they hoped they would primarily because of a lack of equipment in the classrooms or schools.
