Field Experience in the Cloud: An Open Globalized Teaching Experience
Students enrolled in EDUC 581 of the master’s degree online Educational Technology Specialist Program are required to complete a 20-hour field experience in a PK-12 educational environment. They were engaged in a cloud-based global teaching practice with 10th grade students at a Canadian high school for the field experience. This research explored the impact of the globalizing teaching practice in the open online environment on students’ pedagogical and technological knowledge.
