The Goals and Development of an Interactive Web Module for a Teacher Education Course.
Schnorr, Donna; Bracken, Nicole; Hazari, Sunil
The World Wide Web has become a promising medium for delivery of instruction. This paper describes a case study in which the Internet was used to supplement teacher education course instruction via an Interactive Web module. The goals of using such a medium for facilitating teaching and enhancing learning are described as they relate to learning theory. Such goals include improving informal assessment opportunities, increasing study evaluation opportunities, and increasing students' opportunity for inquiry based and project based unit plan construction. The Interactive Web module has been implemented for two years in a teacher education course and has been modified based upon student surveys. This paper also describes the survey results and modifications that were made to the Web Module accordingly. Preliminary research on the use of this Interactive Web module is described as well as plans for future research. (Author)
