This study aims at the development of methods for training school teachers and university students in teacher-training courses to adopt information technologies. For this end we examined and modified curricula so that information technologies such as computers and information network are employed in day-to-day problem solving processes. Then we developed methods for enhancing information literacy fo both school teachers and students by linking activities in the new curricula and workshops of school teachers.
As to practical studies, we proposed a method for the development of computing environment with the minimum manpower and budget utilizing old-style personal computers and ferr software. Also, we proposed that the use of information technologies in the teacher-training curricula should be focused on that in "subjects on educational methods and techniques" and "practice teaching" while applied technologies should be dealt with in classes on teaching methods for specific subjects or in
elective courses. In this regard we suggested that the students should be given a training program for the enhancement of computer literacy prior to the introduction of information technologies to the curriculum and that such program should be given as an extra curricula program so as not to hinder the achievement of the original objectives of the curriculum.
It has been found that the introduction of technologies in "subjects on educational methods and techniques" is more effectively conducted through group activities such as developing teaching plans or teaching materials than through lengthy discussions. Furthermore, we had the students hand in their projects through network and realized that it is important to make them familiar with information technologies.
In practice training the use of information technologies was effective in time- consuming tasks such as exchanging information before and after practice teaching and discussions because the students had access to the computing environment in their offices. The students realized the importance of having an objective view on the information that they sent out and the significance of sharing and utilizing information.
Finally, it has been found to be of great importance to develop human resources such as teaching assistants and to improve pre-university education on information technologies. The outcome of this study has been published on network and offered to the public to share our findings with them. Less
