Teacher Candidate Applications of Telecommunications.
Crawford, Caroline M.; Hilburn, Sue; Willis, Jana
Telecommunications offers teacher candidates an environment through which to delve into higher order thinking skills within the methods coursework, student teaching internship experience, as well as within the PreK-12 classroom environment. Modeling of appropriate uses of technology within the learning environment as the teacher candidate progresses through their course of study emphasizes numerous constructive opportunities to integrate telecommunications to reach the lesson objectives. Telecommunications encompasses several elements that can be positively modeled within a learning environment. Listservs, chat sessions, bulletin boards, and electronic mail create positive environments within a learning environment when focusing upon the scope and sequence of the instructional design process. Further, the instructor-centered and learner-centered focuses of telecommunicative uses are also elements that deserve further review. (AEF)
