The Use of Telecommunications by Preservice Teachers and Their University Supervisors.
Braswell, Ray
This study discusses the capabilities of preservice teachers to engage in a daily dialog with other preservice teachers as well as university supervisors, which has been shown to be an effective means to enhance the student teaching experience. In this study, students who utilized technology daily for communication with one another and with their university supervisors were compared to those who did not utilize the technology during their preservice teaching experience. In addition, the study looked at the effects that the use of technology in interacting with the preservice teacher had on the university supervisor. The paper reports on an examination of the use of electronic mail and listservs by preservice teachers and their university supervisors during a 10-week preservice teaching experience. The study was designed to: (1) evaluate the use of electronic mail and listservs by preservice teachers during their preservice teaching experience; (2) evaluate the use of electronic mail by university supervisors with their students during the preservice teaching experience; (3) evaluate the student-to-student use of electronic mail and listservs by preservice teachers during their student teaching experience; (4) develop guidelines for the feasibility of the use of electronic mail by all preservice teachers during their preservice teaching experience.
