Mobile Experiences of an Adolescent Learning Spanish Online in a Twenty-First Century High School
Tochon, Francois Victor
International Journal of Pedagogies and Learning, v10 n2 p91-106 2015
This article focuses on a case analysis based on the experience of an adolescent having to further Spanish learning through the Spanish 3 (third year) distance course of a twenty-first century high school program. Autoethnographic reflections mediate the storyline of the experiential report, as conversations and observations are internalized by the researcher in a process that allows deep critical thinking on what the adolescent lives and what the researcher experiences through this contact. The findings suggest that mobile content programming may create a situation in which malleable minds are molded in a threatening environment that contributes to modify their habits through operant and respondent conditioning, behavior modification, behavior analytics, enslaving their way of life, as their identity is constantly under challenge.
