School Partnerships: Technology Rich Classrooms and the Student Teaching Experience

Building upon an established relationship between a college and a local school district, this project formally designed a “partnership school” at which teacher candidates conduct field experience. In addition to providing these participating candidates with a clinically rich experience through closer supervision by and interaction with their faculty supervisor, the project enriched the experience of the high school English students by providing appropriate technology in the classroom and integrating it with instruction. Program implemented at the SUNY College at Oneonta detailed in academic journal article and presentation.
