Rising to the Challenge: Preparing Pre-Service Teachers During a Global Pandemic
Research continually demonstrates that a significant learning curve exists related to educators integrating technology into classrooms. This learning curve was exacerbated when instruction shifted entirely online following school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This study examines the complex process of preparing pre-service teachers (PSTs) to transition to a new world of online teaching, shedding light on critical components of teacher education during this time. Looking across multiple sources of data (i.e., interviews, Zoom lessons, written feedback, lesson plans), findings point to the importance of creating opportunities for PSTs to collaborate and to practice teaching virtually.
