The online discussion enabled secondary pre-service teachers to explore specific discipline issues of practice, pedagogical content knowledge and technology enhanced learning with practicing teachers. In addition to providing pre-service teachers with a lived experience of and model of online collaboration which can be used in their future classrooms, students developed networks with other educators who were also passionate about their discipline.
