The Australian Government has funded the Teaching Teachers for the Future (TTF) project across all teacher preparation programs with the intention of enhancing the capabilities of graduate teachers for integrating Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in their classrooms. Although the project has focused on the first four subjects of the national curriculum (English, Mathematics, Science, and History) it is expected that the changes made in those areas will spread across teacher preparation programs. This paper describes the evolution and revision of a subject within a teacher preparation program to reflect the TTF focus on developing graduates’ Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge.
