The Role of Keystones and Preservice

by: John Danchisko

KTIs are expected to lead and connect educators as advocates for developing technologically integrated pedagogy within and beyond the classroom. This role is enhanced when collaborating with preservice teachers. Questions arise: What role does technology play in the professional evolution of preservice teachers and to what degree does this help or hinder teacher development? In the era of 24/7 plugged in access, should student teachers be expected to be available outside of the school day? To what role does the host teacher stay connected through digital means? The role of this session is to engage in a conversation that addresses the role of the host teacher as a Keystone and the experience of preservice teachers, especially when considering technology integration.
