  Abstract: Effective implementation of technology within the context of inquiry instruction has been known to enhance the meaningful learning of physics by both enhancing the conceptual understanding and the motivation of students. Students who are explicitly aware of the questions they are trying to answer are more intellectually engaged in the design of the procedures to answer those questions. Mentoring pre-service teachers in the effective use of technology within the context of inquiry instruction is an important function of the TiR's role in preparing high-quality physics teachers. Examples of current technologies used in physics classrooms and how these technologies can be effectively used in inquiry-based curriculums are discussed.
