Using ICT to support reflection in pre-service mathematics teacher education

João Pedro da Ponte, Paulo Oliveira, José Manuel Varandas, Hélia Oliveira, Helena Fonseca


This paper analyses a virtual supervision setting (e-mail and forum), during the practicum, in a pre-service secondary school mathematics teacher education program. It is a research about the authors’ own professional practice using a qualitative-interpretative approach and case studies of student teachers. The results show that the setting was significant for pre-service teachers who had a more reflective attitude but was seen as a burden by the others. The forum enabled fruitful reflections and discussions and the e-mail was mostly used for organization matters. Future attention must be paid to the role of the educational supervisor in establishing a culture of participation in the forum and of fluent use of the e-mail.
