Using Technology To Enhance Understanding of Leadership.
Browne-Ferrigno, Tricia; Muth, Rodney; Choi, Cynthia
This paper reports the findings of a comparative study of the content of electronic exchanges among members of learning communities to determine what kinds of online dialogue differences, if any, exist. The virtual learning communities compared are two cohorts within the same professional preparation program for teachers aspiring to become school leaders. The content area and instructor are the same for both cohorts; the significant variable is the mode of instructional delivery. One cohort received nearly all instruction through a distance learning program. The other cohort meets together weekly and uses online activities for approximately 30 percent of instructional delivery. Comparative data used are online messages generated during the first semester of both programs in which leadership was the central focus. (Contains 23 references.) (Author/AEF)
