Abstract

Desktop videoconferencing has been used alone and in conjunction with large-group videoconferencing for preservice and inservice teacher education and also for classroom instruction. The lower cost, accessibility, and ease of use of DVC will certainly encourage its wider use in the future. The majority of the research studies (almost all on a small scale) of DVC and teacher education endorse the capability of DVC to support meaningful collaboration between students, teachers, and faculty. In the majority of these studies, DVC is just one of the communication technologies used in combination for preservice teacher education and professional development, which points out the importance of choosing the right tool for the right purpose. The following paper reviews a variety of projects, their methods, and their findings.
