Abstract

This article outlines the use of the online SpeakEasy communication package in two sections of a mathematics methods course in an elementary education teacher certification program. The instructional uses of SpeakEasy are described, with specific attention to the manner in which it was woven into the fabric of the course and made central to the instructional format. Specific data were collected to determine the various effects of extending classroom discussion into the virtual realm in this context. These included the promotion of reflection on the teaching of mathematics and increased "vocality" of students who provided little or no input in the actual classroom. The students also possessed positive attitudes to the use of SpeakEasy in the course. Recommendations for instruction and instructional design are provided.
