The Global Classroom: An International Perspective.
McIsaac, Marina Stock
This paper reports the experiences of faculty and students at Anadolu University (Turkey) who participated in Globaled, a global education, computer-mediated communication project. The project, initiated at the University of New Mexico, included faculty and students at four other American universities and those at Anadolu. The paper examines the potential of the computer to offer information to people who have traditionally been information poor by providing them with networked data through the electronic classroom setting. A case summary of the participation of Anadolu students in a Globaled pilot project in the spring of 1992 is then described. Issues that emerged as a result include pedagogy, motivation, access to information, technical difficulties, and language. The benefits of a global classroom, as identified by participants, are discussed, and questions about what networked information will be made available, for whom, and under what conditions are raised.
