Facilitating Creative Online Forums and Discussion Boards in Online Learning by Linda Silva

Facilitating Creative Online Forums and Discussion Boards in Online Learning by Linda Silva | TickTockTech | Scoop.it

Too often, instructors get caught up in seeing forums as a quantitative measure of how much a student has learned, gauging understanding by replying with prompts that are, frankly, as boring or as tedious as some of the material students have been asked to read. 


These conversations between students have more depth and more personality because they are creating, building, having fun and interacting. They are not just replying to a prompt. They are using their imaginations. The process brings an energy and passion that engages them.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 20, 5:08 PM

Linda Silva writes, "One of the best ways to get students more involved is by offering prompts that enable students to use their own previous education— and prod them to use their imagination."


I've used a version of this idea in my professional development classes for years. I always encourage 'teaching stories". This is a way to help teachers see the connections between the course content and their own teaching environments. It also encourages story telling which is a very powerful way to synthesize ideas, not to mention very interesting to read (listen) to.

iPads vs. PCs in Teaching

iPads vs. PCs in Teaching | TickTockTech | Scoop.it

"This is an opinion piece for the pros and cons of using both iPads and the traditional PCs in teaching. Since I am beginning my fourth year of using an iPad in my classes, I thought it would be great time to compare how each device is used, as well as state how they can complement one another. I contacted my colleague Jonathan Wylie, and we brainstormed together some ideas for this post."

Effectively engaging online requires a myriad of skills that we strive to foster in school – effective written communication, brevity and civility.

From article: "We need to ensure that they know how to evaluate a website, a blog post, a tweet, a Facebook entry. These evaluative skills transfer cross curricularly and prepare students for the broader world of online communication."
