Jeffrey Carpenter, associate professor of education and director of the Teaching Fellows program at Elon University, co-authored an article in the peer-reviewed Teaching and Teacher Education.
Carpenter worked with Shea Kerkhoff and Xiaoying Wang from the University of Missouri St. Louis on the article, “Teachers using technology for co-teaching and crowdsourcing: The case of Global Read Aloud collaboration.”
The article abstract says, “Information and communication technologies (ICT) have increased opportunities for potentially beneficial teacher collaboration across schools. One manifestation of this can be found in the Global Read Aloud (GRA), a grassroots literacy project in which teachers and students from various schools, regions, and countries use ICT to connect around common readings. This research used surveys (N = 436) and interviews (N = 21) to explore the teacher collaboration associated with the GRA. We found that GRA collaboration involved crowdsourcing and co-teaching of various degrees of depth. Participants benefited from access to resources and like-minded educators, and were challenged by logistical and internal barriers.”
