The authors conducted a content analysis to examine trends in articles published between 1996 and 2014 in two journals—Teacher Education and Special Education (TESE) and the Journal of Teacher Education (JTE). They analyzed the data using visual inspection, magnitude of trend, and percent of change. Most notably, they confirmed reductions in nonempirical articles, survey research, qualitative inquiries, and program descriptions. By contrast, they observed increases in articles that included P-12 student outcomes and in quantitative research, as well as in topics of in-service, global, and clinical experiences.

The authors used advanced online Bug in Ear (BIE) technology as an approach to supervise and to provide 13 teachers in training with virtual coaching feedback online, in real-time, during their distant clinical experiences. The results confirmed that improvements in participants’ use of research-based instructional strategies were achieved, in part, through immediate virtual coaching feedback delivered from a distance, using advanced online BIE technology.

Can You Hear Me Now? Evaluation of an Online Wireless Technology to Provide Real-Time Feedback to Special Education Teachers-In-Training
In this study, the authors investigate whether an advanced online technology can be used to give teacher trainees real-time feedback on their use of research-based classroom practices. Participants include 15 teachers (2 men and 13 women) enrolled in a field-based graduate special education teacher preparation program. Overall, trainees view the advanced online technology as a powerful tool for improving the teaching and learning process but report the need for patience and perseverance in both the teachers and the supervisor, as well as teachers' need for constant reassurance.
