Using IPad to promote evidence-based reflection of pre-service student teachers
The project is to promote evidence-based reflective practice among pre-service students by providing evidence-informed teaching supervision through the use of i-pad. It is believed that student teachers' on-going professional development can be achieved in the form of teaching supervisions and reflective consultations(Watson & Gatti, 2012). This project adopts the use of i-pad and relevant applications to allow teaching practice supervisors to capture teaching moments in digital forms which can enrich the discussion and reflection in post teaching conferences with the shared perspectives from supervisors and students.
