This session will introduce how a hypermedia video-based program has been used to enhance teacher education and the ways in which research has been designed around the use of the program. Reading Classroom Explorer (RCE) is a web-based hypermedia tool designed to help pre-service literacy teachers learn about pedagogical and cultural diversity. RCE uses video taped footage to transport pre-service teachers into exemplary literacy classrooms and enables them to visit, revisit, analyze, critique, compare and contrast a set of diverse classrooms. The purpose of the session is to (1) provide an overview of various research projects that have used RCE and a description of how the program has been used in literacy teacher education; (2) illustrate the research methods that were used to investigate the integration of RCE in education courses; and (3) present aspects of the RCE research designs which illustrate ways to identify and analyze teacher candidate learning.
