A Theoretical Look at Electronic Community's Conversation and Curriculum.
Rogers, Curtis R.
This paper examines the importance of the electronic community and its conversation for educators. Highlights include: (1) connections in electronic communities, including listservs, World Wide Web-based discussion groups, and the "conversational web"; (2) cyber-collaborative learning, including virtual classrooms, developing student writing skills, and collaboration among educators; (3) social development within the electronic community, including virtuality and postmodernism; (4) electronic community and hypertext conversation, including the chaos of non-linear asynchronous communication; (5) the individual and the community, including advantages of non-linearity for advancing critical thinking skills and allowing greater flexibility in understanding curriculum; and (6) conversational nuance and beyond, including conveying emotion and miscommunication/misunderstanding.
