Abstract

This article is based on the first-year results of a three-year R&D project called LIVE (Learning in a Virtual School Environment), 1997-2000, intended to develop new didactic networking models in virtual school environments with a special emphasis on mobile communication. This is performed by increasing the possibilities for co-operative and experiential learning in teacher education and by using MICT in open and flexible learning environments effectively. To carry out the research, a three-level development model has been built, including the research group, the development group of the teacher trainers and the group of student teachers and pupils. In the collaborative action research model, the research group tries actively to influence the developmental processes of the teacher trainers' own work. The main result so far is that the learning of student teachers and pupils should be based on similar pedagogical experiences to the those of the development group in order to make an impact on teaching and learning practices. In addition, new pedagogical applications have been created, considering and predicting how teacher education could respond to the rapid development of MICT. Keywords: co-operative learning, open and flexible learning environment, mobile communication, teacher education, teacher's professional development
