Millennial teachers: Student teachers as users of Information and Communication - A New Zealand case study
Based on Brown and Duguid (1991) notion of interrelatedness of learning and work practices in which learners acquire "embodied ability to behave" in a certain manner, the paper argues that personal usage of ICT within student teachers own learning will form their models of teaching practices. This paper draws on a survey conducted in 2005 at a teachers' education college in New Zealand. The aim of the survey was to examine the ways in which students are using Web- based learning technology in their initial training period. Findings of the survey reveal insights into the perceptions of students for the use of ICT in their own studies. The findings provide a snapshot into the current situation of teachers' education in relation to the use of Internet technology and online learning systems. The findings have implication for teachers' education in the new millennium.
