Electronic Discourse in Preservice Teacher Preparation
Killian, Joyce; Willhite, Gary L.
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v11 n3 p377-395 2003
After a review of the literature on electronic discourse (ED), including research from teacher education and several other academic fields, the authors describe an investigation of the efficacy of integrating electronic discussion sites into an elementary language arts methods class. Findings from students' pre and postdiscussion dispositions and perceptions of the experience are presented. Instructor notes and analysis of online discussion contributions are used to provide context and illuminate findings. Findings are then discussed in view of the existing research on ED. (Contains 6 tables.)
