Abstract

This study investigated the effectiveness of using online instruction as a supplement to a face-to-face introductory technology education course. The analysis of the data, collected from 46 pre-service teachers, indicates that instruction, when combined with traditional face-to-face and online components, can complement each single delivery mode. However, the blended approach adopted in this study also brought some unexpected challenges for both students and the instructor. This paper presents some recommendations for teacher educators who would like to explore or adopt this approach.
