The twenty-second session that I am blogging here at SITE 2017 related to K-12 Online and Blended Learning is:
Online Student Teaching with Undergraduate Preservice Teachers
Presider: Jing Liu
School districts across the United States now offer online education. With the evolution of online teaching and learning, it is essential that teacher preparation programs offer online student teaching. The purpose of this descriptive case study was to investigate the experiences of seven secondary preservice teachers who completed student teaching in dual settings, online and on campus. Student teachers valued not having to write the curriculum for online classes, stated that classroom disturbances were limited online, and reported high parental involvement with online classes. Student teachers, however, struggled to motivate online students and manage their time efficiently.
Note that I am presenting at the same time as this session, so I am unable to take notes. If you happen to be in this session, I’d encourage you to post your notes below.
