The Impact of Synchronous Inter-Networked Teacher Training in Information and Communication Technology Integration
Martin, Stewart; Vallance, Michael
Computers & Education, v51 n1 p34-53 Aug 2008
This paper summarises the outcomes of research that recorded and interpreted change in pre-service teachers' pedagogical beliefs when immersed in unique synchronous networked collaboration. The pre-service teachers were involved in the design and implementation of synchronous networked tasks, supported by the theoretical and pragmatic application of "informed" Information and Communications Technology (ICT) integration. The pre-service teachers' use of digital technology graduated from a didactic, broadcast delivery of information to more constructivist strategies that involved interaction, collaboration and "good" learning. Moreover, the pre-service teachers gained competencies during a 12-week programme that led to the development of a suggested framework for ICT task development able to effectively promote and support improvements in learning.
