Adult Basic Education and the Cyber Classroom
Johnson-Bailey, Juanita
Journal of Research and Practice for Adult Literacy, Secondary, and Basic Education, v5 n3 p50-55 Win 2016
In this brief article, the author expresses her greatest concerns regarding learning in the cyber world: the appropriateness of online learning for courses with sensitive subject matter, the comfort level of nontraditional learners in this new setting, and the inability as an instructor to fully engage with the learner in real time. As an adult educator, she is most challenged by the question of whether the online setting is a safe space. Herein, she shares some personal experiences teaching adult basic education (ABE) online courses and the challenges she faced addressing online bullying as it happened. The article concludes with three pedagogical strategies for managing potential online bullying.
