Dr. Karen Wixson (School of Education) received a continuation of funding for more than $1 million from the U.S. Department of Education for the project “Transforming Teaching through Technology (TTtT).” Transforming Teaching through Technology, a Teacher Quality Partnership project of UNCG in partnership with Guilford County Schools and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, will address Absolute Priority 1 and Competitive Preference Priority 1 by developing an innovative and replicable model for the integration of technology in the teacher education curriculum. Through reforming the teacher education curriculum by embedding the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework and proper modeling and scaffolding in the teacher development process (from pre-service to induction), Transforming Teaching through Technology will equip 300 teacher candidates per year with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to intentionally integrate technology in a thoughtful and adaptive manner to promote academic learning for all students.
