Abstract

This paper discusses how technology was used to promote reflection and mentoring in a beginning teacher support program for math teachers. Various technologies were tested and used to virtually connect mentees and mentors from various locations across the state. Data was collected by analyzing responses in online modules, blogs, surveys, and in professional growth feedback cycles. Results revealed that some technologies promoted reflection and mentoring interaction by providing convenience and programmatic integration while others challenged participants with technical specifications and a lack of ease of use.
