Abstract

This research project served dual purposes: increase the awareness of the educational systems in both countries and unite 34 pre-service special education and early childhood teachers from two countries through technology in an interactive assignment. The three goals of this project were: 1) familiarize pre-service teachers with the technology that establishes a distance-learning environment, 2) increase understanding of each special education systems (their own and that of the other country), and 3) apply recently learned collaborative skills in their international communications specifically with their peers. The United States/Jordan project serves to inform future international collaborative studies through the discussion of the obstacles researchers and participants experienced. The authors observed an increased awareness of diverse cultures and their unique special education programs in both sets of students and researchers. This study reviews the challenges and possibilities of international distance collaboration.
