A Virtual View: Classroom Observations at a Distance.
McDevitt, Margaret A.
Journal of Teacher Education, v47 n3 p191-95 May-Jun 1996
Describes a technology-mediated field experience for preservice teachers built on an emerging Professional Development School network and a two-way television system. Surveys of participants in both televised and in-person observations indicated students preferred in-person observations, though very few said they observed educationally sound pedagogy in school practice sites.
