Description
Field experience is an important component of teacher education programs. In the Department of Communication Sciences and Special Education, pre-service teachers are required to participate in field experience and teach students with disabilities in k-12 school settings. These pre-service teachers are required to submit their field experience activity reports to the instructors on a regular basis. However, the field experience knowledge stored in the reports is usually not shared on the Web and is not readily available to other students for learning and easy access. Thus, we propose to build a Web-based searchable knowledge base to disseminate the special education knowledge pre-service teachers learned from their field experience.
