This presentation will be discussing the evolution of preservice teacher final projects in a technology integration course which occurred within a program that has a one to one iPad initiative. Students in this course create an integrated unit that requires them to create a multi­touch book, an iTunesU course, and multiple lesson plans that integrate audio, video, and reviewed app. Students are required to create examples of all the technology.

In addition to showing student projects, we will discuss how the project has evolved during the evolution of A one to one iPad program . This project is a very loosely structured curriculum project that allows for the integration of technology based on the technology available and engaged these future teachers in making instructional choices. We also will discuss ways that we work to overcome common barriers in Preservice teacher education like checklist mentality, lack of creativity, and aversion to risk taking. In technical areas we will discuss student reluctance to use audio in meaningful ways and issues with uploading, sharing and ensuring appropriate creative common use.

The overall structure of the course will be discussed including 2/3 of the time being spent on exploring technologies, apps, and accessories and making decisions about each of them. The final third of the course requires students to act collaboratively and demonstrate the ISTE Standards for Teachers in both their behavior and products to demonstrate their technology proficiencies.
