Abstract

NCATE adopted new standards on March 31, 2000 including a standard that the unit designs, implements, and evaluates curriculum and experiences for candidates to acquire the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to help all students learn. Preparing future teachers to reach and teach all students, particularly diverse populations is a challenge for many schools, colleges, and departments of education in rural, culturally homogenous locations. Audiovisual conferencing technology allows faculty to bridge the cultural gap through a well-planned sequence of field-based activities that ensures they will be prepared to help all students learn. This technology allows data to be transmitted across networks and enables our university, in collaboration with public school partners, to provide field experiences "outside the box". Using this technology, collaborative activities are possible even with partners that may using different videoconferencing applications.
