Summary

Asynchronous computer-based conferencing offers several unique capabilities as a medium. Participants can read and write messages at whatever time is convenient for them, groups can interact even though participants are geographically separated, and messages are available to readers almost instantly. Because the medium has served for over a decade in mainframe computing to support a sense of professional community among geographically dispersed groups in business and academia, researchers at the Educational Technology Center (ETC) examined whether computer conferencing could help solve a well-documented problem among secondary science teachers, namely, their isolation both from ongoing developments in science and science teaching and from colleagues with whom they might exchange ideas about the teaching of science. This document discusses the results of the first year of operation of the Science Teacher's Network; expectations, actual usage, network topics, factors which promote discussion and implications for network design and management.
