As University Supervisors of Student Teachers during a nationwide pandemic, we can honestly share that we have never seen student teachers more stressed at this point in their program. As student teachers are trying to juggle the many tasks of student teaching such as leadership projects, teaching evaluations, and edTPA, they are trying to figure out how to effectively teach during a virtual time while their cooperating teachers are learning to do the same. Therefore, we were interested in hearing about technologies our student teachers were using to support their students in the virtual classroom. After surveying student teachers, it was reported that Flipgrid, Seesaw, Padlet, Nearpod, and Flocabulary were the most popular technologies being used in the virtual setting. An emphasis was placed on free technologies, those that could be used for cooperative learning, and identifying resources that worked synchronously and asynchronously.
