Preparing Science Teachers Using Distance Learning: Urban and Rural Students Collaborate Using Video Teleconferencing (VTEL) Technology.
Saurino, Dan R.; Bentley, Michael; Glasson, George; Casey, Dennis
Universities and colleges have attempted to enhance education through the use of video teleconferencing. This paper reports on a videoconferencing effort between two campuses of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University using synchronous two-way audio and video equipment to allow two groups to interact. The teleconference was facilitated by television cameras and microphones at both locations that permitted video and audio to be transmitted in both directions. The two campuses in the study are located in rural and urban areas and serve as sites for teacher education graduate programs in mathematics and science. The collaborative action research study described in this paper is an investigation of students' use of videoconferencing as a reflective tool for sharing ideas and programmatic experiences in two contrasting locations and cultures.
