English Education 2.0: An Analysis of Websites that Contain Videos of English Teaching
Sherry, Michael Bruce; Tremmel, Robert
English Education, v45 n1 p35-70 Oct 2012
In this article, we address how websites intended for ELA teachers encourage user participation and what kinds of English education these sites promote or exclude. We selected sites based on assumptions drawn from interactional sociolinguistics as well as additional criteria that developed during our search. Our analysis focuses on the George Lucas Foundation's Edutopia.org as a central example, as well as five other sites with various similar features. Together, these sites promote a progressive, situated, project-based vision of English teaching, and they may serve as both venues and models for how English teacher educators who share that vision can reach a broader audience.
