Welcome to the "Student Site" - your e-handbook of information, created for students with a vision for affecting the future through a career in education. The materials that you will find here will help you begin to see through the eyes of an educator. You will find a wealth of resources that address issues currently important to preservice teachers.

Check out the "Resources" section for web sites and articles that will assist you with infusing technology into your teaching as you begin your career. The "Try It Yourself" section allows you to begin to incorporate technology into the planning of specific lessons. Once you start your observations and your practicum teaching, you will want to be aware of the different ways of enhancing the teaching and learning process through the benefits offered by technology.

The Illinois Community College Board, in partnership with the Illinois Board of Higher Education and the Illinois State Board of Education, is pleased to present the "Student Site" as a portion of "Preparing Technology-Proficient Educators in Illinois," a project funded in part by the United States Department of Education through a "Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers To Use Technology" grant. This exciting project serves as an access point for Illinois educators to find accurate information about using technology as an instructional tool in the classroom.
