e-Book

Teaching Language and Literacy, K-6 is an e-book for preservice teacher candidates that I am in the process of developing with the support of a UOIT Teacher Innovation Fund Grant.  It includes multimedia content and a wiki, where current students in the program work collaboratively to construct knowledge about teaching and learning language arts. 

The research for this year will revolve around the notion of collaborative knowledge construction in a preservice language arts class, using a wiki.  It will build on work I’ve done in this area with the online mentoring project last year, which I co-authored an article on and submitted in the summer of 2007.
