The preparation of new teachers has been an enduring issue of the field of education (Handbook on Research on Teaching, 1963; 1973; 1986; 2001). The objectives of this paper are to describe the interaction among different stakeholders in teacher education facilitated by a novel technology-based approach, Video Traces. The analysis suggests that this is a potentially effective approach for making mutual learning across public school and university-based teacher educators more concrete, visible and compelling. In our paper, we (a) present an overview of the pedagogical philosophy that guided the design of the Video Traces medium, (b) describe the enduring problem in teacher education we are using Video Traces to address, and (c) present data and analysis from our approach in the context of North American educational system.
