Millennial teachers: Student teachers as users of information and communication technologies

Mary Katherine Allan, University of Canterbury, New Zealand


Abstract
Based on Brown and Duguid (1991) notion of interrelatedness of learning and work practices in which learners acquire “embodied ability to behave” in a certain manner, the paper argues that personal usage of information and communication technologies (ICT) within student teachers own learning will form their models of teaching practices. The paper draws on a survey conducted in 2005 at a teachers’ education college in New Zealand. The survey provided an outline of the ways in which students use Web- based learning technology in their initial training. Analysis of the survey revealed students’ perceptions of the use of ICT in their own studies, and provided a snapshot into the current use of Internet technology in teachers’ education. The findings have implication for teachers’ education in the new millennium.
