Abstract

This study investigated the purposeful use of asynchronous telecommunications in a science education methods/curricu-lum course involving the use of a nonrestrictive, public Web-based forum with preservice science teachers. The findings in this study revealed most participants had positive attitudes towards interacting with the Web-based forum. Fur-thermore, there were no significant differences between par-ticipants' attitudes with respect to access to a networked computer. The interface of the Web-based forum contributed to the shaping of reflective thinking. This study depicts how a group of preservice teachers can interact in a nonrestric-tive, asynchronous Web-based forum and participate in a community of practice.
