Abstract

This study analyzed patterns of computer-mediated commu-nication of 32 preservice science teachers on a public Web-based forum. The participants were able to engage in scaf-folding pedagogical ideas with each other as a result of shar-ing peer perceptions. The findings revealed that a large amount of structure is needed for students to discuss science-specific pedagogical issues on a Web-based forum. A satura-tion effect in the discourse may occur with large groups of preservice teachers responding to one particular forum post-ing. Dialogue prompts and scaffolding were aspects of the Web-based forum that facilitated new learning in both sci-ence- specific and general pedagogical areas.
