Laya AB, Dr. TV Thulasidharan
The technology integration in teacher education has met with many challenges and the most among them is how far the student teachers are provided access to technological facilities and other support facilities for the effective production and presentation of multimedia. A scrutiny into the problem is valuable if the accessibility of student teachers is rated. A sample of 250 student teachers from the University of Calicut and MG University is taken through random sampling technique. Hardware, Software, Physical Support, Staff Support and Training Initiative are the five dimensions selected for the present study in which the accessibility to technological and support facilities are assessed. The findings of the study reveals that the prevailing extent of access of facilities provided for multimedia production and presentation in teacher education programmes are not satisfactory. Therefore there arises a need for designing specific training programmes for enhancing the awareness and skill of student teachers for the production and presentation of multimedia.
