Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

This paper describes a project designed to help pre-service teachers use technology effectively in their future classrooms. The project provided the opportunity for pre-service elementary teachers to communicate with 2nd grade students via e-mail and the ICN, an interactive television communication network. The 2 groups of students collaborated to create a web site and HyperStudio presentations featuring children's literature. The project enhanced the motivation of 2nd grade students to read and to write. The pre-service teachers reported that the project helped them gain new technology skills and a better understanding of the students they would be teaching in the future.
