  1. 1. Teaching via Videoconferencing: Instructional Strategies Berks County IU, August 2011Monday, August 8, 2011
  2. 2. supporting inter@ctive learning theory of transactional distance psychological, geographic & communications space transactional distance “... with separation there is a psychological and communications space to be crossed, a space of potential misunderstanding between the inputs of instructor and those of the learner.” when designing lessons for distance teaching, consider structure of lessons and dialogue.Monday, August 8, 2011
  3. 3. supporting inter@ctive learning create a constructive learning environment 1 Establish rules for dialogue & exchange. Dialogue is purposeful, constructive and valued by each party. Each party is respectful and an active listener. 2 Successful distance educators are facilitators. Research overwhelmingly suggests that distance educators should adopt ‘bottom up’ pedagogy. 3 Integrating CMC and social networking technologies facilitate collaboration, cooperation & meet the needs of learners who “lurk.” By providing learners with time to reflect and respond to course material in a virtual forum that is meaningful to them, feelings of community are nurtured, self-efficacy is enhanced, and a safe learning environment is created.Monday, August 8, 2011
  4. 4. supporting inter@ctive learning create a constructive learning environment 4 Think out loud. Together. About thinking. Using digital media technology, Goldman found that when learners and teachers used technology to “think about their thinking” (p. 164) as a learning community, the culture of the classroom transformed into a more equitable space for “gender, race, cultural, and age differences” (p. 164) Q: What will you do to create a constructive learning environment in your classes? image: http://www.ezdtech.eu/Monday, August 8, 2011
