Online Communication--Building Learning Communities.
Justice, Madeline C.; Espinoza, Sue
Children in today's society must function in many environments. The home, family, school, neighborhood, peers, and society generally shape our children for the future. Teachers, partners of this cyclical challenge, have to be prepared to help students meet the challenges of the world 2000. Teachers can learn to meet this goal by creating learning communities through technology and sound teacher preparation programs. A program that allows preservice and inservice teachers to use online communication to enhance their personal growth is the beginning of an online community. The availability of synchronous and asynchronous activity through the use of WebBoard is demonstrated and explained in this paper. Samples of assignments, solutions to problems teachers faced online, and ideas for future assignments are discussed. (Author/MES)
