Abstract

: If doctors can be trained by virtual surgery, pilots can be trained by virtual flight, and military members can be trained by virtual maneuvers, then why can't teachers be trained by digital field placements? This paper seeks to answer: Is there a way to train teachers through online field experiences for the traditional classroom as well as to be effective online teachers? Are distance learning technology experiences an effective learning environment for the candidate field experience? Does online field supervision provide effective information for the candidate to be successful in the classroom? Data from the candidates' experiences will be presented reflecting the value and feasibility of digital field experiences in teacher preparation programs.
