Abstract: Today’s pre-service teachers may be digital natives, but lack experience and expertise in integrating technology into the teaching and learning process, or technological and pedagogical content knowledge. Technology preparation is the most important step toward the integration of technology into classroom teaching. This article looks at an elective education internship completed by pre-service teachers to develop their TPACK skills. It also investigates a professional learning community by education faculty to improve their skills in TPACK.
