Back-Channel Communication: Web 2.0 Technologies for Social Learning <i>(Research-based)</i>
Jan 21st, 2009
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Grand Sierra Ballroom I
Session Type: Concurrent Session
For both on-campus and distance education students, cell phones and social networking tools contribute to active communication outside class. This presentation will report on a study of the purposes for which graduate students use such back-channel communication; the technologies they use; the value they perceive it contributes to their learning; and how their choice of technologies relates to factors like age and course delivery format (online vs. face-to-face). Join us to hear what students say about their use of these technologies and share your own experiences along the back channel.
