About the Project
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.
