dc.description.abstract This study examines supervising field instructors’ reporting and assessment of technology use on School Placement. The research examined a sample of reports by supervising field instructors containing their assessment of pre-service teachers’ use of technology in their teaching. Findings highlight that technology was seen exclusively as a presentation aid for teaching and concerns were expressed by the field instructors about ‘overuse’ of technology by the pre-service teachers. While highlighting the need for further professional development, the paper also highlights the complex interplay of both school-related and university-related factors that influence how pre-service teachers use technology. en_US
