Abstract

Mobile technologies are becoming ubiquitous. They are used in everyday life to gather and analyze data, to synthesize information, and to solve problems. There is a growing need for pre-service teachers to learn how and when to implement mobile technologies so that they can assist 21st Century PK-12 students in meaningful and real world learning. This chapter discusses the increasing use of mobile technology within teacher education programs and the need to use multiple devices in ways that impact the teaching and learning processes in teacher preparation programs. The research study focuses on the use of mobile technologies to video record pre-service teachers’ observations of the first day of school and examines the impact that peer review of videos has on learning new teaching concepts. Future application of these concepts is considered.
