Role of technology in International Education in Teacher Education. Technology is adding to the potential for planning, conducting, and follow-up opportunities related to International Education (IE). It is also increasing the relevance and importance of this dimension in education. While recognizing that teacher education is culturally bound, how can the affordances of collaboration software be used in relevant and effective ways? What software can we use to include you? What are the high threshold and low threshold options? How do IE perspectives change the academic and social lives of participants? What are the organizational challenges? What are the features of different kinds of programs that seem to help make a difference: Formal & informal IE?? Undergrad & Grad IE? Blending with study abroad and international internships? Partnering with international students and faculty?
