Abstract: This instrumental case study documents the technology training experiences of 20 novice teachers and their perceptions of how well their teacher preparation program prepared them with the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill the NETS for Teachers. Data were obtained from semi-structured interviews, field notes, and university documents. Simultaneous collection and analysis of the data helped the researcher to create a deeper understanding of the novice teachers’ technology training experiences. The findings were organized into major themes that facilitated interpretation through the lens of ISTE’s Essential Conditions for Implementing NETS for Teachers. The data analysis revealed three major themes: (a) disconnect, (b) relevancy, and (c) retention.
