Facilitating Student-Generated Content Using Web 2.0 Technologies
Lee, Eunbae
Educational Technology, v51 n4 p36-40 Jul-Aug 2011
Web 2.0 technologies have created a trend of user-generated content by supporting media production, collaboration, communication, and dissemination. User-generated content is translated into student-generated content (SGC) in education. SGC engages learners in an authentic project that fosters students' autonomy, creativity, and real-world problem-solving skills. However there is a lack of literature guiding educators and instructional designers in facilitating SGC using Web 2.0 technologies. This article presents a framework, related motivation theories, design principles, and guidelines to avoid common mistakes. Understanding motivational aspects of SGC especially will help educators and instructional designers design and implement effective SGC activities.
