In the research symposium we share results from several studies investigating the use of LessonSketch, an online multimedia environment, and how it supports practice-based teacher education. LessonSketch is an online environment where teachers can create, discuss, annotate, and share representations of teaching (Chieu and Herbst 2012). We share research that examines the use of LessonSketch tools for solving challenging problems of practice that are common in teacher education. Presentations will span teachers’ development of content knowledge necessary for teaching and rehearsal of skills associated with essential instructional practices.
