A Theoretical Discussion for E-Text Communication in Learning
Lee, Hye-Jung
Interactive Learning Environments, v23 n3 p317-331 2015
With the recent development of internet and mobile technology, a new kind of e-text communication is emerging. From messenger chatting, mobile texting, to social networking through Twitter or Facebook, e-text communication is becoming a main communication channel, especially for the younger generation. However, there has not been sufficient investigation into how this new kind of e-text communication can be applied in interactive learning environments, and which attributes of communicative e-text might influence learning. This paper, therefore, integrates a theoretical framework for understanding the essentials of e-text communication and explores the implications for its appropriate application in learning practice. After reviewing the historical background of orality and literacy as the basis of communication, this paper presents the core attributes of e-text communication. Finally, a theoretical framework for evolving e-text communication is elaborated with learning implications.
