The McLuhan Global Classroom: A Singapore-U.S. One-Year Instructional Interaction.
Aune, Adonica Schultz; Lim, Dan
WebCT was integrated and modeled in a global Instructional Technology (IT) Certification Summer Institute offered through the University of Minnesota. Courses were first introduced with an on-site certification where technology integration was modeled in each course through the use of highly interactive web-based learning applications and games authored in Flash and Toolbook. The United States and Singapore participants achieved the intended learning outcomes through (1) the modeling of technology integration; (2) the constructivist learning environment; (3) collaborative learning; (4) problem-based learning; as well as (5) the experience of online learning. After five weeks on-site, individual real-world projects were assigned in each course for the remaining full IT certification. Through synchronous and asynchronous communication, projects continued. East and West viewpoints are underscored and emphasized in creating a quality Instructional Technology Certification program that addresses global online instruction and corresponding needs. Includes 11 notes. Cites 20 works. Attached is a student survey. (NKA)
