Abstract

Research indicates that feedback is critical to the growth of preservice candidates, and technology is one method of providing immediate and purposeful feedback. Most feedback, however, tends to focus on developing instructional skills of preservice teachers and not attending to improving cultural responsiveness. While feedback using technology can be an effective tool for teacher candidates, successful implementation of this process can be better supported by first providing an opportunity for candidates to develop a culturally responsive lens. This pilot study analyzes the effectiveness of one technology feedback platform on preservice candidates’ instructional practices and cultural responsiveness.

Keywords: technology-enhanced feedback, preservice teachers, culturally responsive teaching

Identify Grant

This was partially funded by a GSU University Research Grant for 2018-2019: Using Technology to Develop Culturally-Responsive Teaching through Increased Student Engagement and Reflection. Funds were matched by the College of Education/ Division of Education, Dr. Timothy Harrington.
