Designing Learning to Engage Students in the Global Classroom
Lock, Jennifer V.
Technology, Pedagogy and Education, v24 n2 p137-153 2015
The purpose of the article is to examine how the paradigm shift in education and the availability of digital technologies have created new opportunities to move learning beyond the microcosm of the traditional face-to-face classroom and into the online global classroom. Students and educators are better positioned to work with other students and experts in new and meaningful ways at anytime and anywhere in the world. The challenge is how to design and facilitate authentic collaborative learning in the global classroom that engages students. The author shares a four-element framework with examples from her research to provide images and strategies to help educators to design rich learning experiences for the global classroom. The paper concludes with a discussion of technological and pedagogical implications for practice.
