Abstract

The authors of this chapter share a technology integration project, “International Network of Students Investigating Technology in Education” (INSITE), that was conducted at Purdue University. The project demonstrated how pre-service teachers in America were taught and prepared in terms of technology integration. More than 1500 pre-service teachers in the College of Education at Purdue University and 500 International Partner (IP) participants have been involved in INSITE since September of 2008. In this chapter, the authors share a case of four cross-cultural student teams that participated in INSITE in September 2010. The authors discuss the process and implications of communication and coordination within the international collaboration teams.
