Building Community through Virtual Learning Communities
Gill, Deborah
College Teaching Methods & Styles Journal, v1 n2 p47-60 2005
The present study describes and discusses the use of a virtual community to build language and culture skills. According to the National Standards Project (2004), "The United States must educate students who are linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in a pluralistic American society and abroad." Through the use of World of Diversity, students not only have an opportunity to practice their language skills, but also meet all other national standards (i.e., communication, cultures, comparisons, and communications) in a unique and fun way. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
