  Abstract: For the past seven years we have been experimenting with a wide variety of technologies in secondary physics methods courses at the University of British Columbia. Some of these technologies are well known (PhET simulations, data collection tool, sensors). While other technologies, despite being freely available, are rarely used in teacher education. We have collected data on the effectiveness of the pedagogies that incorporated these “new” technologies for supporting the development of Pedagogical Content Knowledge of future physics teachers. In this talk we will discuss two of these technologies: PeerWise – an online database for collaboration on multiple-choice questions developed at the University of Auckland, NZ; and Collaborative Learning Annotation System (CLAS) developed at the University of British Columbia. We will also share our tips on how these technologies can be incorporate more effectively and how future physics teachers can use these technologies in their own teaching.
