Reaching Out to the Teachers in Appalachia via Distance Education.
Whitworth, Joan M.
This case study describes a distance learning experience from the point of view of a first time instructor and the students (elementary school teachers) enrolled in a graduate-level science education course at Morehead State University (Kentucky). Many of the students were from isolated areas in Appalachia. The paper concludes that participants were pleased with the distance education course. All students felt that their educational experience was enriched by their involvement with technology and collaboration with teachers from different locations. Suggestions for future improvement are discussed. (Contains 17 references.) (WRM)
