Abstract

Practical training is an important aspect of teacher education programs in Quebec (Canada) universities. Student teachers spend one hundred and twenty days of their four-year university program interning in high schools in order to progressively develop their professional skills within their chosen field. The present study proposes to enhance understanding of the potential advantages of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in practical teacher training (field practice). More specifically, it aims to shed light upon how ICTs help student teachers overcome teaching challenges encountered during field practice. Results presented are taken from a pilot study conducted during the internship of 800 student teachers from the province of Quebec (Canada).
