The twenty-seventh session that I am blogging here at SITE 2017 related to K-12 Online and Blended Learning is:
Blogging and Microblogging for Community Building in a Virtual Field Experience
Sign up as a Presiderfor 4:15 PM-5:15 PM in Capitol H.
This article describes the construction and implementation of a two-semester practicum for teachers enrolled in a certificate program for K-12 online teaching. This program was developed based on the principles of connectivist theory. Through blogging and microblogging, certificate program participants were able to develop a virtual learning community that provided them support through their course design practicum and field experience, allowed for constructive reflection and afforded teachers the opportunity for feedback from multiple perspectives on their online teaching methods.
Note that I am presenting at the same time as this session, so I am unable to take notes. If you happen to be in this session, I’d encourage you to post your notes below.
