The collaborative nature of school system/college of education partnerships developed for LH-LT, LATD and other similar distance education projects necessitates carefully designed and clearly articulated protocols so that the requisite public school-university relationship supports effective implementation.
The purpose of Learning Across Time and Distance (LATD) is to link elementary teacher preparation students, with 3rd and/or 4th grade students at Carter Woodson and Andrew Robinson schools (Duval County) for one-on-one tutoring aimed at enhancement of skills in reading and the English language arts, using distance education technology (video conferencing and Internet-based electronic interactive journaling).
Learning Across Time and Distance (LATD) was implemented in RED3310-Reading Methods I for Elementary Teachers and RED3311-Reading Methods II for Elementary Teachers.
Proprietary protocols and protocol materials developed/obtained for both LTV and the LATD projects include a tutoring session lesson format, informal instruments/techniques used by tutors to learn about students, tutor training sequences, dual mini-libraries of children's books used in shared reading sessions, and protocols for interactive journaling and selection of school sites and UNF tutors.
Criteria for selection of UNF tutors include 1)enrollment in RED3311-Reading Methods II for Elementary Teachers or RED3310-Reading Methods I for Elementary Teachers, 2)knowledge of English language arts instructional materials and approaches, 3)familiarity with LATD technology, 4)willingness to participate, and 5)ability to meet tutoring schedule.
While the previous projects used computer-based video conferencing hardware and software (Sagem Meet Me), LATD uses computer-free sound/video teleconferencing equipment and color video conferencing cameras with built-in microphones.
