Teacher educators are constantly faced with developing effective and innovative approaches for teaching preservice and inservice teachers not only how to use technology but how to teach with technology. This paper describes the underlying structure of ideas that guide the design of the mathematics and science teacher education programs and steps taken to use technology-mediated courses to support that design. The program uses new web-based communication tools such as live real-time video conferencing, captured video of classrooms, the development of captured video analyses, electronic journaling, blogs, and the creation of online learning community of teaching practice portal to develop shared teaching understanding and practice. Each academic year approximately 90 candidates and experienced mentor teachers participate in the program. Each course focus within the program was examined with reference to three constructs: types of activity, authority, and community structure. This work represents an attempt to rethink distance learning to support teacher education along these lines.
