Beyond the Elementary Classroom Walls: Exploring the Ways Participation within Web 2.0 Spaces are Reshaping Pedagogy
Phirangee, Krystle
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v22 n3 p299-316 Jul 2013
This paper is a report on the findings of a study involving four full-time elementary teachers, who incorporated technology into their teaching to various degrees. The study was guided by the overarching question: How is participation within Web 2.0 spaces reshaping teaching and learning in the elementary classroom? To explore this question, a qualitative approach was adopted whereby primary data were collected. Findings indicate that participating within Web 2.0 spaces are redefining the ways teachers meet student-learning needs. More so, there seems to be a shift in how we define the classroom. Learning and teaching is slowly extending beyond the walls of the traditional classroom.
