About the Project

The Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) Project at Northern Arizona University (NAU) was a federally funded initiative that is administered through the Arizona K-12 Center. The purpose of this program was to help education faculty integrate technology into their professional practices. Offering individual technology mentoring and support, helping with course redesign efforts, and providing technology resources represent the primary ways in which the PT3 staff helped to model effective technology integration.

Through this project, future teachers will be proficient in using technology in teaching and learning - both as a tool to be used and manipulated and as a tool for facilitating learning of the challenging reading, writing, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills required in our highly complex society.

The goal of PT3@NAU was to ensure that the teacher preparation program at Northern Arizona University prepares future teachers for the new highly technological and facilitative model of teaching and learning.
