    • "PSTs [preservice teachers] reported they did not recall using tools like computers, probes, or other inquiry tools in their Kindergarten - College Graduate learning of science. They recalled only listening to lectures, taking notes and completing homework problems and worksheets." (Shively & Yerrick, 2014, p. 6).
