This study describes the implementation of a project designed to improve the preparation of Grade 3–8 mentor and student teachers to teach mathematics and science through the integration of multimedia technology and pedagogy. Project goals were implemented through (a) joint training, (b) ongoing support, and (c) provision of hardware and software. Both phases of the Interactive Video Project—the summer training institute and the fall semester implementation of the program—were evaluated. Based on the evidence, the project proved to be successful. Student teachers were better prepared to integrate technology in their classrooms. Mentor teachers changed the way they taught mathematics and the tools students used to find and present information in science.
