This paper discusses the scope of language teacher education for technology and looks at different ways of providing professional development in this area. Technology education for teachers faces a number of challenges, both in selecting the right content for the right audience, as well as in its implementation. In this paper I look at some of the ways in which these challenges have been met in different contexts. The paper concludes with a simple model for the provision of technology education for teachers.
