Preservice Technology Mentoring.
This pilot study investigated the experiences of preservice teachers enrolled in a required technology course as they mentored practicing educators about technology. Data were collected over the course of a semester through e-mail. A qualitative analysis revealed the following themes: reasons for mentoring, what happened, course resources, thinking about it, useful experiences, and mentor learning. Findings indicate that mentoring may reinforce course learning. In addition, the convenience of mentoring sessions and reflection appeared to enhance mentoring experiences. (Contains 10 references.)
