The importance of Social Presence in Online Courses

The importance of Social Presence in Online Courses | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

To me, Social Presence depends a lot on how participants choose to take part in an online course. Of course, it also depends on the opportunities of interaction provided during the course.

This is so important for distance learning and too many people seem reluctant to do it.

Is it about design or the type of learner?

Anne Fox's curator insight, February 9, 2015 6:07 AM

And the mirror image of this is that the course design and online moderator needs to facilitate this social presence. #CCDFLITE #M_Housetraining

Luis Felipe López's curator insight, August 12, 2017 2:26 PM

This article is interesting to promote good habits in ourselves and in our students, since working together, there are more chances to learn and enjoy the process of learning. Of course, this is applicable in online courses and face to face class because in both environments, there is the bad habit of behaving like student A. Additionally, the tips are very simple and very useful to put into practice. plan our schedule of classes give us more opportunities to interact with the other people, share information and provide regular feedback.

Adam Heckler writes:

" The worst part about it is that the technology world moves so fast and changes so rapidly that the jargon and slang is extremely hard to keep up with, even for people who try to pay close attention.

So today I thought I’d bring you a mini-encyclopedia or mini-dictionary of sorts, where I’ll lay out some of the more confusing technology terms that educators will encounter on a regular basis. I’ll do my best to explain them as well, so you can at least sound knowledgeable if you are, say, stuck in a conversation with someone who knows a lot about technology. Here we go!..."

Being a Better Online Reader - The New Yorker | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it
Soon after Maryanne Wolf published “Proust and the Squid,” a history of the science and the development of the reading brain from antiquity to the twenty-first century, she began to receive letters from readers. Hundreds of them. While the backgrounds of the writers varied, a theme began to emerge: the more reading moved online, the less students seemed to understand. There were the architects who wrote to her about students who relied so heavily on ready digital information that they were unpre

*Solar powered mobile classrooms*

"Maendeleo" means "progress" in the Swahili language. We are committed to helping build a productive computer services industry in East Africa, connecting people and information using the latest Internet technologies, and thereby increasing personal incomes and boosting the local economy. In doing so, part of our aim is to set an example for other NGOs, businesses and government organizations to join in and help grow this industry.

 

Maendeleo Foundation's mission is to complement the existing education system by making computers available to people of all ages, providing customized training, and encouraging and supporting the formation of Information Communication Technology businesses. We operate innovative training programs in a network of primary schools, and cooperate with organizations of similar interests that share our commitment to the promotion of technology for development. As a natural outcome of this mission, in 2012 we opened a training center for students wishing further technology education.

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

More than 100 teachers from across Europe participated in the SMILE (Social Media in Learning and Education) action and undertook a pedagogical journey to explore jointly the challenges and opportunities involved when using social media in learning and education.
 
The outcomes of the project, funded by a Digital Citizenship Research Grant from Facebook, are now published in a digital handbook. You can find pedagogical materials and resources from the learning laboratory with many valuable reflections and suggestions on some critical aspects of the use of social media as regards school policies, pedagogical principles, professional development, responsible use and challenges to adoption.
