Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, v27 n1 p4-11 Fall 2010
This paper discusses the outcomes of a professional development project offered to faculty of Arizona State University's College of Teacher Education and Leadership. The goal of this project was to assist instructors with progressing technologies and to help them transform their pedagogy to leverage the affordances provided through the integration of Web 2.0 tools. Through the redesign of an instructional unit to incorporate social networking, instructors experienced positive outcomes. Findings suggest that the benefits of integrating social networking tools used in a meaningful way while carefully considering how they fit within specific content areas and teaching methodologies included increased feedback for students and a more student-centered approach to teaching. These are important considerations for teacher education programs of the 21st century. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
