Hypermedia and Pre-service Teacher Education: Some Possibilities in Analogy with Didactics

Conference paper
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 92)


Being a novelty, especially in the field of teacher-training, hypermedia appears to be a promising tool for bringing together the several fields of knowledge any foreign language teacher needs to manipulate in order to make didactic decisions. In the Portuguese context, where opportunities for facing real teaching situations are confined to the teacher-training year, hypermedia products would seem to be of great value. This paper will introduce this topic of teacher-training through hypermedia and suggest areas in which such databases could be put to good use.
