Abstract

This paper addresses socio-cultural possibilities and obligations related to teaching as visible when teachers engage K-12 learners in the use of collaborative technologies over large bandwidth in small remote rural schools. A systemic initiative was conducted with the aim of enhancing the learning environment in such schools and keeping them from closing for pedagogical reasons. Engeström's activity theory framework provided the analytical framework. Leading teachers were teachers willing to open up their classrooms, using webcams and electronic forums, to a network of professional collaborators. We present the ways in which they did, and our understanding of the new possibilities and obligations that emerged.
