Abstract: Professional and personal lives are being transformed by technology. Educators can utilize technology tools as a means to blend real-world relevance with content-specific subject matter. Training that combines pedagogical and technological tools provides the pre-service and in-service teacher practice in preparing the 21st century citizen. Teacher education programs need to assess how technology can aid the P-16 edification process and then based on the assessment analysis develop initiatives to meet the needs of the P-12 population. The assessment and development needs to be ongoing as technology changes. This reports an example of the continuing growth of one teacher education program to meet those needs.
