Abstract

Computer video conferencing as a computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) technology brings learners closer to real-world environments and it provides increasing opportunities for learners to share experiences across time and space. This paper describes how multipoint desktop video conferencing (MDVC) is used in pre-service teacher education programs in Singapore to add value to the practicum. It enhances the professional development of trainee teachers and teacher mentors by allowing them to share ideas, experiences and resources in teaching and mentoring in real time with an audience wider than the schools where they teach.
