Teachers U4 Lesson 2

The Lifecycle of an Online Community

Teacher’s Perspective

We saw in Unit 4 Lesson 1 how your students should act in order to contribute to the development of an online community. They should be ACTIVE AND ENGAGED (Phase 1), ACT AS A SOCIAL PRESENCE (Phase 2) and THINK AND LEARN AS A GROUP (Phase 3). These three phases lead to the creation of a successful online community, which in turn will allow you and your students to enjoy an enriching learning experience, from both a personal and an educational perspective. Click/tap on the interactive elements to find out more about the three phases.
