Abstract

In this paper, we will discuss our efforts to capitalize on the collaborative and interactional nature of the Internet to create a virtual lesson study community that both is true to the goals and philosophy of lesson study while mediating the traditional challenges for lesson study implementation. We present the overarching design conjectures behind our online community and specific examples of activities, support structures and student engagement. In particular, we share how the interrelated use of WebLogs (blogs), discussion boards, synchronous audio chat/screen sharing, and mini flash camcorders and/or "smartpens" can be used to create an instructional space that is conducive to a variety of lesson study activities and that holds the potential for increasing teachers’ access to a lesson study community. Preliminary analysis and results of the effectiveness of the virtual lesson study community will also be discussed.
