This article describes a Freirian framework that was developed for conducting virtual field experiences through two-way videoconferencing. The project is part of a P3T3 grant aimed at infusing technology into teacher education programs. A description of the grant is offered along with an overview of the process through which technology was infused in initial courses in the program. The article explores three key elements of the framework and the pedagogical activities that were found to be most successful at instructing preservice teachers on issues related to communicating, understanding, and practicing in multicultural settings. The implications of the grant and the project are explored for their ability to familiarize preservice teachers with diverse school settings that would not otherwise be available through teacher education programs located in predominantly white and rural settings.
