Preservice teachers’ beliefs and attitudes increases the likelihood that they will integrate technology in their future teaching. Consequently, teacher preparation programs should provide courses designed to enhance preservice teachers’ attitudes and beliefs towards technology use in the classroom. However, many programs instead focus solely on technology skills and knowledge and are not designed to encourage positive attitudes towards technology integration. It is therefore important for teacher educators to integrate technology effectively in their own classes choosing their options on the basis of best practices in this area across the globe. Present article explores the practices adopted by teacher- fraternity in this regard so as to provide them with some of the options.
