I was wondering how do preservice and even student teachers learn about technology use in the classrooms? Looking through my class schedule there isn't any one course dedicated to learning about the different kinds of technology yet for every lesson plan we design we have to include some of the NETS standards. Since I've been observing I have encountered my first classroom Smart board, In Focus, and yesterday I actually saw my first ELMO. The thing is I haven't got a clue how to work them so I'm definitely at a disadvantage when it comes to trying to integrate them. Is student teaching generally where you find out how they are used? Do you think it would be advisable to ask one of the teachers I observe to show me how it works and how they utilize it in their classes?
