Abstract

The intent was to create a replicable scenario for university-K12 (kindergarten through twelve) partnerships throughout the country. Three broad expected outcomes of our efforts were established. First, videoconferencing was expected to increase and improve communication between teacher preparation programs through university faculty and pre-service students in the field. Specifically the system needed to address the geographic separation of faculty supervisors and student teachers in placements over 50 miles away, and at times up to 120 miles away. Second, it was expected the system would support future efforts for synchronous learning and enable a regional university to increase sharing of people resources, mentoring, and improved communication for people in the field separated by barriers common to rural remote locations. Third, the implementation had to be a replicable technical model for K12 schools and other institutions wanting to improve communication and resource sharing.
