dc.description.abstractMany preservice teachers enroll in certification programs charged with preparing them for their in-service careers, but are often dislocated geographically from the locations in which students of diverse backgrounds live. This study involves a preservice teacher assisting struggling first grade readers from diverse backgrounds over a distance of 360 miles. We examine descriptions, examples, and insights into ways to use desktop computers and high-end videoconferencing technology to obtain a practical experience in literacy training. Participants included a preservice teacher as cybertutor, an in-service teacher and her students, an on-campus professor for the preservice teacher, and a professor of literacy education at a university in the Midwest. Despite limitations noted, we conclude that a preservice teacher can obtain a diverse and practical experience in the content area of reading while using a desktop to highend videoconferencing.
