The major purpose of this investigation is to determine the level of computer technology competencies held by both preservice and present teachers. A computer technology survey will be issued to preservice teachers and present teachers to assess their level of computer skills. The results will be grouped into three levels of computer knowledge: awareness, literacy, and application. Secondly this study would like to determine if more computer instruction is being received in the preservice or in the inservice environment. It is hypothesized that most preserved and present teachers will fall into the levels of awareness and literacy. It is also hypothesized that more computer instruction is being delivered through preservice means than through the inservice environment.
