Abstract

The desire produce highly qualified teachers poses many new and challenging problems when this learning takes place at a distance. This necessitates individualizing the course of study to address different backgrounds, experiences, attitudes and beliefs. We believe that technology has provided a bridge that allows students, separated through time and place, to engage in a rigorous yet individualized teacher training program where authentic K-12 experiences are not limited by common issues faced in online education. This symposium will present a series of papers that describe innovative approaches to providing prospective teachers with individualized instruction and authentic experiences. At the end of all the presentations the audience will be provided with an opportunity to view the various technology components in an interactive question and answer period.
