Supporting Teacher Education with Computer-Based Telecommunication Systems Academic Article uri icon


  • Computer-based telecommunication systems have the potential to change the way people communicate, both on and off the job. This article reports how university students seeking initial teacher certification are trained in the use of one computer-based telecommunication system and how the system is used to support their academic studies and their experiences in student teaching and beginning teaching. Beginning teachers who have been trained in computer use for communication and resource retrieval have the potential to be leaders in the public schools as technology becomes more and more pervasive in modern life.
