This presentation discusses experiences incorporating service learning and global learning networks in a graduate course taken primarily by teachers, Social and Cultural Implications of Educational Technology. Graduate students were engaged in collaborating with community and international partners to support K-12 students in computer-based educational projects with students in other countries. The initial research focuses on the graduate students' experiences with a view towards refining the course design. At the end of the course, focus group type discussions were held with the students about the course, and these discussions were used to inform the design of an end-of-class survey. The presentation discusses experiences with the course, findings from the survey, modifications to the course, and subsequent experiences with the modified course.
