Abstract: Reflection is a human process that involves thoughtful adaptation of one’s perceptions to the surrounding stimuli. Inherently as it involves adaptation, it essentially is a learning process and can be conscripted as an instructional strategy particularly for educating pre-service teachers. The advance of Web 2.0 technologies offer a variety of opportunities for reflection to be used in teacher education. Especially voice recording for online collaborative communication permits an immediacy and convenience that text cannot provide. It allows groups of pre-service teachers an ability to assess confidence in their knowledge by judging a response to be vocally concise. The rich and empathetic quality of voice can more powerfully and personally represent the information conveyed in immediate simple form or through crafted statement as the spoken word is primal and an integral part of our social structure and culture. In this presentation we will discuss the potential and theoretical grounding of recorded voice communication as an online externalization tool for reflective dissemination.
