Abstract

Authentic learning is often considered to be hands-on and experiential in nature. This paper describes research that was conducted with an educational methodology designed to provide students with an authentic learning experience in a field-based setting with the help of computer technology. Furthermore it presents efforts to expand the use of the methodology in an elementary school through efforts to provide faculty in the school and undergraduates who will be engaged in their student teaching practicum in the school with the same access to the methodology through engaging them in field-based learning. Plans for exploring the effects of the professional development are also discussed.
