Abstract

The activity of a virtual community of support and communication for pre-service teachers (TACT), which was connected to a school-based community of practice (teaching in a networked classroom), is studied. The integration of information and communication technologies (ICTs) into teaching and learning was participants' focus of collaborative inquiry and knowledge building. A design experiment methodology was applied, and ethnographic methods used. Results are presented in three forms: 1) themes and patterns that demonstrate participants' integration of ICTs to their own learning and teaching, 2) collectively grown online activities, and 3) an illustrative (best) case of a participant's acquisition of expertise over the ten-year period. Three key processes in the design (or cultivation) of a networked community for teacher education and professional development are identified in the discussion of the results: participatory design rooted in a university-school partnership, reflective practice and production of artifacts, and onsite/online legitimate peripheral participation.
