Abstract

With the goal of preparing our graduate education students to work effectively with diverse populations, this study explores an online field experience between technology facilitator candidates in the US and K-12 teachers in Namibia. As part of the requirement, candidates mentor Namibian teachers in the design and development of WebQuests to be used in Namibian classrooms. In terms of a technology-based field experience, we are looking at candidates’ ability to support fellow teachers’ technology-integration goals and their ability to mentor via an online distance learning technology. In addition, in terms of diversity and equity competencies, we will examine our candidates’ knowledge, skills and attitudes regarding the impact of the ethnic/racial, cultural/linguistic, socio-economic, historical/political and ethical/legal context on the successful incorporation of information and communication technologies in teaching and learning.
