Understanding and Preparing Teachers of Millennial Learners
This paper reports on the results of a "Technology Proficiency and Use" survey of over 200 pre-service teacher education students. Respondents' current levels of technology fluency and patterns of use are examined as well as their comfort and fluency in unique categories including software, mobile communications, gaming, social networking, and prevalent secondary technology experience. Considerations are provided for developing a pre-service teacher education technology class designed to help prepare transmillennial teachers to engage millennial students.
