Online collaborative mind mapping in a mathematics teacher education program: a study on student interaction and knowledge construction
The inclusion of alternative and multimodal methods for online interaction and knowledge construction in mathematics teacher education is still an incipient field. In this paper, the authors present a multiple case study of three blended courses in an elementary mathematics teacher education program at Western University. In these blended courses, the online component included the construction of collaborative mind maps. Through constructivist grounded theory methods, they analyzed teacher candidates’ mind maps as (a) final products, and (b) interaction processes. The resulting theory describes how pre-service mathematics teachers interact and construct knowledge while they engage in online collaborative mind mapping. The study provides insights into the ways that collaborative and multimodal technologies affect mathematics teacher education, and in turn, suggests how its implementation may be improved.

A Comparison of Web-Based Concept Mapping Tasks for Alternative Assessment in Distance Teacher Education
Three sections of the same distance education class completed a series of Web-based concept map assessments using one of two methods. Open-ended maps applied in section 1 led students to conduct more relational thinking overall, but variance in map items was very high introducing more subjectivity in scoring.

Searching for a methodology that would allow the author to 'see' across worldviews and articulate them both was the academic challenge of investigating learning ideology across Canadian and Aboriginal worldviews with Aboriginal Nuu-chah-nulth Elders. A mode of inquiry was required permitting the author to hold a Euro-heritage and an Aboriginal heritage in a bi-cultural balance as experienced by a participant in both.
