What is the nature of onsite and online mentoring which enables student teachers to design inquiry-based, technology rich learning experiences? In this case study, faculty and expert teachers worked with fifteen student teachers during an elementary school practicum. An online intelligent design environment supported the development of a community of practice and instructional design. Discussion focuses on teaching from an inquiry stance and engaging in the intellectual work of mentoring student teachers to teach with technology rather than just modeling practice.
