Virtual Interns in the Field: Pre-Service Educators as Online Mentors to At-Risk Middle School Science Students.
Winslow, Joseph; Smith, Douglas
Electronic Journal of Science Education, v3 n2 Dec 1998
Reports on a study in which five undergraduate education majors mentored six at-risk middle school science students using real-time (synchronous) chat technology. Results of the analysis indicate that the participating middle school science students, over the course of the project, asked more thoughtful questions, remained on task, and perceived improvements in their attitudes toward science and their ability to understand science concepts.
