Teacher education programs cannot fail to recognize the increasing importance of state and national standards in this era of high-stakes accountability. Emerging technologies provide teacher education programs with various options to meet these standards throughout the preparation of pre-service teachers. In addition, computer-mediated communication has the potential to enhance the reflective practice of pre-service teachers when incorporated into standards-based assignments. This paper presents the initial findings of an on-going pilot study in a middle grades teacher education program at a large southeastern university. Two issues are examined: (1) the middle grades program's effort to meet state and national standards with a new technology; and (2) the reflective discussion of pre-service middle grades teachers resulting from the use of asynchronous communication.
