In this chapter the authors present research that investigated the formation of ICT ecologies of learning in a Canadian teacher education program. The growth and development of ICT in Canada has placed tremendous responsibility on educators to be informed about not only acquiring ICT skills and knowledge (ICT literacies) but, more importantly, to understand the consequences of emerging social, technological, economic, and political ICT issues that hinder and/or enhance student learning, health, and knowledge. The authors’ research project looked critically at Canadian educational contexts and how teacher candidates (TCs) are prepared to use ICT when entering the teaching profession. The authors highlight how a group of eight teacher candidate researchers (TCRs) engaged in efficacious learning.
