Learning Out Loud: Is it the Missing Link in Online Classes?
Friday, October 19th, 12pm PDT/ 3pm EDT
Free Webinar (Registration Required)
Join me, Michelle Pacansky-Brock, author of Best Practices for Teaching with Emerging Technologies and associate faculty at Mt. San Jacinto College, as I shares the results of an ongoing study that seeks to discover how online, asynchronous voice discussions affect community college student learning at a distance. I will be joined by one of my former online students who will answer your questions and share her experiences.
In 2008, my online teaching studies showed evidence that VoiceThread, a web-based tool that gives users the choice to comment in voice or text, increases online community and enhances the instructor-to-student relationship. But over the years, I found that only 25% of my students regularly selected to comment in voice when given a choice. I wanted to know why and understand how I could improve this percentage, as well as discover what what would happen if I was successful.
