Designing and Incorporating Mathematics-Based Video Cases Highlighting Virtual and Physical Tool Use
This study examines preservice teachers’ preferences in relation to mathematics video cases that integrate tools. The study revealed two primary clusters and minor third cluster. The first cluster indicated that preservice teachers are concerned about the integrated teaching of multiple subjects with mathematics and the use of visuals to facilitate teaching and catch students’ attention. In the second cluster, preservice teachers recognized elements that would facilitate their own teaching, making clear connections between theory and practice and lesson preparation guidelines. The third cluster focused on technical issues of the distribution of educational materials and could be linked to an emerging issue of curricular materials and ways to use it in mathematics teaching.

Technology mediated coaching or mentoring has a strong possibility of overcoming barriers of accessibility of onsite mentoring. The article explored peer reviewed empirical studies on technology-mediated mentoring for inservice teachers. Three mediums for technology-based mentoring were explored: technology-enhanced professional development coupled with access to a mentor, electronic mail, and online discussion forums. Those who accessed the resource reported shifts in their attitudes towards instruction and changes in instructional practices.
