I have worked with teacher education for thirty five years. Much of that time I have also worked with technology education for teacher education, including completing one of the first dissertations using the PLATO computer system at the University of Illinois in 1973. At that time I had many visions of where such education could go. For the past ten years I have been actively exploring the potential of using the web as an instructional tool. Finally in the past few years with web-based instruction we are beginning to move to the directions that I had envisioned the many years ago. Through these years I have published several books and many articles, and presented numerous conference presentations, in a variety of areas including technology education. All of my classes are web-supported, and some are web-based. I have used a number of streamed videos, animations, and discussion boards in these classes.
