E-Mentoring: Enhancing Special Education Teacher Induction


Journal of Special Education Leadership Volume 23, Number 1, ISSN 1525-1810


Teaching in 21st-century schools cannot easily be separated from technology-based solutions. Instead, technology is increasingly becoming an essential tool for any teacher's toolbox, especially the new teacher who is often considered a digital native. In teacher education and professional development, technology-based learning, or online/e-learning, is becoming an accepted mode of course delivery and teacher support. This article briefly describes the growing e-mentoring literature base in teacher development and contextualizes that growth by highlighting particular e-mentoring programs. It is the intent of this review to share knowledge about this growing technology-based solution for furthering mentoring and induction supports for early career special educators.
