Description

How can authors use digital technology to write and publish from a poststructural theoretical framework, opening up spaces of possibilities that could not be achieved by writing and publishing in a traditional format? The authors share from their experience of authoring and testing Becoming a Teacher through Action Research, an eTextbook for preservice teachers. Macromedia Authorware is used by the authors to produce an eText in which readers construct layered-meanings and openly engage in the dilemmas of teaching. The results of pilot testing in summer 2004 are discussed.
