Networked Learning Communities in Teacher Education.
Breuleux, Alain; Laferriere, Therese; Bracewell, Robert
Faculties in schools of education are challenged to prepare educators for a changing world. In Canada, a growing number of educators are proactive in the face of a networked world. SchoolNet and its educational partners have been instrumental in articulating the possibilities that lie ahead. The individual's need to learn must be met in considerate and meaningful ways. In response to the growing needs for learning and the changing worlds of education, schools of education are working on a converging, vigorous action-research program, based around the TeleLearning Professional Development School (TL.PDS). Three key goals of TL.PDS are presented (with associated practices and findings for each goal): (1) making the discourse on learning and the knowledge about learning more public to sustain a knowledge-based society; (2) developing new knowledge of how telelearning technologies can support sustainable communities of learners; (3) extending opportunities for the professional development of educators through Web-extended institutes and practice.
