The Role of Web 2.0 Technologies in Self-Regulated Learning
Kitsantas, Anastasia; Dabbagh, Nada
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n126 p99-106 Sum 2011
Recent research shows that Web 2.0 technologies are not only shaping how college students connect to the world and each other but also are affecting their learning and performance. Additionally, some research evidence suggests that faculty can use social software tools to facilitate student self-regulated learning processes, such as goal setting, self-evaluation, and help seeking. However, purposeful differentiation among personal, social, and academic use of Web 2.0 technologies remains a challenge for both students and faculty, particularly in higher education contexts. This chapter describes how Web 2.0 technologies, especially social software, can be used to support student self-regulated learning in higher education contexts. Selected examples that demonstrate how instructors can integrate social software into course design to facilitate student self-regulation are provided. (Contains 1 table.)
