Building an Online Learning Community That Fosters Relationships - Crystal Browning, KQED

Building relationships between students can be tricky. In order to create a positive classroom community, I need to do the impossible — get teenagers to push passed the gossip and drama that rests on campus like a fog. An online community is a great place to break down some of the barriers that exist. Discussion and blog post assignments provide opportunities for students to communicate digitally with classmates that they might not speak to in person. I take an active role in building these new relationships. When I first assign a discussion question on Schoology, I make sure to leave comments. When students create blogs, I choose a Blog of the Day and highlight what makes that student’s blog unique. https://ww2.kqed.org/learning/2016/12/13/building-an-online-learning-community-that-fosters-relationships/
