The importance of Social Presence in Online Courses

The importance of Social Presence in Online Courses | Online learning in a nutshell | 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.

Luis Felipe López's curator insight, August 12, 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.

Striking a Balance: Digital Tools and Distraction in School

Striking a Balance: Digital Tools and Distraction in School | Online learning in a nutshell | Scoop.it

When my students leave high school, they will need to know norms and etiquette for their devices. They will also need to know themselves -- specifically, their own limits when it comes to distraction. Eventually, they should know when to put their phone away because it's distracting them, or when listening to music while they work is slowing them down.

While this article is from the UK, the trend for mobile computing in the classroom will spread globally, which only supports the need for companies to implement the means to distribute digital content electronically.

Audrey's curator insight, December 19, 2013 4:51 PM

It is already a reality in certain educational establishments, particularly those where there are 5 or less students in the class.  Education then becomes group facilitated learning.  For example, a student whose first language is Russian or Chinese, studying in the UK may not fully understand an English word.  They are able to type the word into their mobile device.   The result is an explanation of the word . They  share the meaning with the other students. The new word they discover has now expanded all students vocabulary.

 

Here is an example:  What is the meaning of infer?  The moble device may suggest conclude.  The teacher suggests deduce  and assume. Another student may suggest understand.

 

The result:   Students have increased their language, in about two minutes.

Most teachers t think that students today have a problem paying attention. They seem impatient, easily bored.

I’ve argued that I think it’s unlikely that they are incapable of paying attention, but rather that they are quick to deem things not worth the effort.

This paper aims to propose a repository of pre-use evaluation criteria for language teachers who wish to introduce e-books or e-textbooks to their own teaching practices. By selectively using a set of such criteria, they will be able to evaluate to what extent a given e-book/e-textbook lends itself to utilisation within their own teaching contex.
