Designing Multimedia Case Studies for Preservice Teachers: Pedagogical Questions and Technological Design Solutions.
Bowers, Janet; Kenehan, Garrett; Sale, Jeff; Doerr, Helen M.
This paper discusses the following pedagogical questions and technological solutions that evolved as three multimedia case studies for preservice teachers were developed: (1) What tools can be garnered to encourage preservice teachers to look beyond superficial aspects of a classroom to observe the complexities of the teaching and learning process? (2) How can preservice teachers be engaged in the process of teacher reflection? (3) How can this case study be made different from a video by exploiting the use of multimedia? (4) How can preservice teachers be engaged in the mathematics of the lesson and encourage them to anticipate possible student strategies? (5) How can instructors be supported who are planning to use the CD-ROM in their classrooms? and (6) What technological boundaries will need to be overcome? The design goal of the project was to create a means for helping preservice teachers observe the complexity of the teaching and learning process through the use of innovative multimedia tools. The research goal was to document how the different versions of the case have been implemented in various teacher preparation courses and then report which features of the case were found to be consistently efficacious in supporting the teacher educators' curricular goals.
