Gilly Salmon’s <br />5 stage model of e-moderation*<br />* Derived from Vygotsky theories about scaffolding<br />
Vygotsky’s theory suggests students play an active role in learning. The teacher collaborates with students to facilitate meaning construction. Over the course of time, a more-skilled person adjusts the amount ofguidance to fit the student’s current performance & ability (Zone of Proximal Development) -<br />scaffolding is about changing the level of support needed. <br />http://www.learning-theories.com/vygotskys-social-learning-theory.html<br />
What have I learned?<br />The value of scaffolding<br />The value of audio visual synchronous contact in the mix<br />That there are vast resources for learning and teaching on line which can really help engage students<br />Not to underestimate the time needed to learn how to use an on line tool<br />Not to be put off by early problems : be prepared to adapt and revise<br />
