Ursula Thomas (Georgia Perimeter College, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-8363-1.ch013
It is the unavoidable and it is not going away. The gravity of technology has firmly planted itself in our daily existence and yes, this includes teacher education.

Our current populations of learners are digital natives, but many educational leaders are digital tourists. As we look to challenge the traditional notions of distance learning, program offerings, and educator preparation models we must rapidly embrace the persona of the digital native to increase relationships with those we prepare as teachers while at the same time valuing and increasing diversity and voice.
