"Because I Know How to Use It": Integrating Technology into Preservice English Teacher Reflective Practice
Shoffner, Melanie
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v9 n4 p371-391 2009
This article examines the role of technology in preservice teacher reflection. Situated in informal reflection (Shoffner, 2008), preservice English teachers' choice of a specific technology medium for reflective practice is examined for satisfaction with their choice and understanding of that medium's influence on their reflection. The implications of the preservice English teachers' views on technology use for reflection are then explored, with attention to the choice of "easy" forms of technology and the elements of journal length, choice of expression, and audience awareness in reflective practice.
