Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of the use of Web 2.0 collaborative tools on teacher candidates’ perceptions of group work and collaborative learning experiences in the classroom. Survey data and narrative analysis (Gall, Borg & Gall, 2006: Herman, L. & Vervaeck, B., 2005; Riessman, 1994) will be applied to gain an understanding of perceptions before and after a course designed to prepare teacher candidates to integrate technology into the curriculum. The complementary data collection processes are designed to provide depth and breadth in identifying factors affecting the impact of the Web 2.0 tools on the beliefs of the teacher candidates regarding group work and collaborative learning experiences in the classroom. Recommendations from this study will contribute to the future use of group projects and collaborative learning in the classroom.
