Abstract

This poster describes a video conferencing project that was undertaken in the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta in the fall of 2005. Pre-service teachers in their social studies curriculum and instruction course were connected, through videoconferencing, to three elementary social studies classrooms. The students were able to watch social studies lessons in action, interact with the children, and debrief with the teachers following their lessons. The poster presents some of the preliminary findings from a study conducted with the pre-service teacher participants about their experiences with this initiative.
