Using the Internet for educational purposes is now commonly accepted. More challenging is the realization of this potential, particularly in the K-12 education environment. According to the growing literature on this topic, using Internet technology during K-12 teacher training will provide more knowledge and skills for teachers wishing to use Internet technology in their own classrooms. In an adaption of the online Community of Inquiry, a revised framework for one-to-one online teaching was developed. In the Relationship of Inquiry framework, the elements of cognitive, teaching, social, and emotional presence outline the educational experience of one student receiving learning support from one teacher. The framework was tested with pre-service teachers using the Math Coach program which offers help with mathematics just-in-time via instant messaging.
