Abstract or Summary
  • A current trend in educational reform requires teachers to be proficient in employing technology in their classrooms. As a result of this trend, teachers need to be prepared to integrate technology into their teaching, and teacher preparation programs have a responsibility to prepare their students accordingly. The handheld computer (PDA) is a potentially useful way to integrate technology into the classroom. Physical education is a field in which technology can potentially impact the areas of research and classroom teaching. The purpose of this study was to explore pre-service physical education teachers’ attitudes toward, and use of, handheld technology and to determine what factors play a role in the decision-making process on whether to use technology. Data collected from surveys, interviews, focus groups, observations, and project reflection papers, presented mixed results. Despite the initial interest in integrating technology into their teaching, a decline in interest and opinions followed. Merely using the PDA was not enough to bring full integration and sustained use into their classes.
