Academic Digital Etiquette: Interacting in online spaces

Academic Digital Etiquette: Interacting in online spaces | Flippin' College Comp | Scoop.it

Celia's reflections:

 

"I have had many discussions with students about the protocols on interacting in online spaces in an academic or professional manner. Whether they be commenting on a blog or giving feedback in comments on a Google document or interacting in Edmodo or Google Classroom, students need to be modelled the ‘professional’ way to behave. Commenting within an academic context is in fact providing feedback and as such quite a complicated skill for a young student."

Marla Bucy's insight:
The final article in this three-part series of using the iPad in the flipped classroom, this article first provides a few suggestions on using apps for content review prior to beginning class sessions. Then the author lists a few apps that can help students work collaboratively, like an interactive whiteboard and Padlet. Subject-specific apps come third, and a brief discussion of augmented reality (AR) apps concludes this series. Great ideas for my writing classes although any instructor should be able to pull at least one app to use from this collection of articles.

Dial up the Dynamics: Learning Out Loud: Make Online Courses Meaningful and Accessible | Flippin' College Comp | Scoop.it
Developing critical listening and speaking skills is an essential element of a student's higher-education experience. However, verbally presenting one's ideas and listening to contributions made by student peers are not typical experiences for online students, as most activities in online classes consist of reading and writing. As online course offerings increase, institutions have an obligation to ensure faculty are empowered to teach with tools that enable students to learn out loud. These tools and the content created with them must be accessible to all learners, including those who are hard of hearing and have vision impairments.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, October 4, 2016 10:21 AM

Online teachers who use audio and video to connect with their students get better results. Asking your students to use audio and video tools to express their understanding dials up the dynamics of online teaching. Don't let accessibility concerns stop you! Go for it.

This educational section of TED Talks provides videos on writing topics like grammatical problems (e.g., the misplaced modifier), puncutation (e.g., apostrophes and commas), and principles of writing (how to slow down narrative, e.g.). With each video (or "Watch") comes two or three more sections: "Think" (questions on the topic); "Dig Deeper" (with additional resources); the fourth optional section, "Discuss" provides topics which students may, well, discuss. The videos that I viewed seem clear, accurate, useful, and well done. The additional segments of TED Ed also would be a helpful resource for a busy writing instructor.

For many of them, Keith Hamon's class was the first exposure to the flipped classroom.
