Abstract

Network technologies bring together schools, universities and scientific and business organizations to effectively work on network projects on the Mega-Class educational platform. This study aims to develop a program for training preservice teachers to work with network mega-projects. It relies upon the projective-recursive network learning model and Intel’s Teach to the Future initiative. The program design has specific pedagogical and methodological conditions and sets out nine stages of implementing the preservice teacher training methodology. The program incorporates elearning tools and a scientific laboratory, which connects all network participants. The teacher training program is effective for working with network mega-projects in educational clusters.
