A Classroom of One Is a Community of Learners: Paradox, Artistic Pedagogical Technologies, and the Invitational Online Classroom
Janzen, Katherine J.; Perry, Beth; Edwards, Margaret
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v17 p28-36 2011
How can students in an online classroom of one, often sitting in solitude in front of a computer, experience community? The authors suggest that in part, the answer lies in creating invitational online educational spaces through the use of Artistic Pedagogical Technologies (ATPs), particularly Photovoice (PV) a teaching strategy. A Zen paradox (or Zen koan) discussion is undertaken utilizing Palmer's (2007) six paradoxes of pedagogical design as a framework for understanding how PV creates invitational classrooms through the presence of paradox. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
