Abstract: Through a review of evaluation data and reports collected from studies of successful Pre-Service courses delivered in teacher education institutions over five years and across multiple countries, the contextual factors regarding how universities can effectively integrate ICT into pre-service education is examined. A meta-analysis of multiple evaluation reports and studies collected will describe Intel®’s process of applying this large scale ICT integration strategy and discuss the systemic factors associated with understanding classroom level change. A synthesis of these studies illustrates the effectiveness and impact of the Intel Teach program in supporting teacher educators in the successful implementation of ICT within their course curriculum.
