The purpose of this study was to examine cooperating teachers’ perspectives regarding music student-teachers’ preparation to integrate technology during student teaching. Cooperating teachers (N=155) responded to an online survey designed to gauge their own technology integration practices and their attitudes regarding student teachers’ abilities to integrate technology over the last five years. Results indicated that cooperating teachers viewed student teachers’ development of technology skills as important and that they were generally pleased with several dimensions of their student teachers’ preparedness to integrate technology into instruction. Discussion focuses on the role of the university supervisor in emphasizing technology integration, and on ways that cooperating teachers might further mentor student teachers in this area.
