Virtual Pedagogy



  • Pedagogy of Graphic Design and Computers
    by Rob Roy Kelly, Rochester Institute of Technology. The challenge for teachers today is finding the most effective means for using the computer as a teaching and learning tool.

We move forward while assessing the benefits of the computer as a tool, defining new restraints and retaining formal values and communication as first priorities.

  • Thinking About the Internet Pedagogically
    by Robert E. Wood, Rutgers University. "Like many teachers, I have been inundated with books, articles, and exhortations about the educational importance of the internet that frequently turn out to be little more than lengthy lists of web page addresses (URLs). What is often missing is any clear identification of the new pedagogical opportunities that the internet offers. As one who has been experimenting with a broad range of internet projects and activities for close to ten years, I offer the observations within about what I have learned from my own experience and from the experience of others."(1999).

    by Carmen Riedlinger, Our Lady of the Holy Cross College.

  • Doing Cultural Studies: Youth and the Challenge of Pedagogy
    "In our society, youth is present only when its presence is a problem, or is regarded as a problem. More precisely, the category "youth" gets mobilized in official documentary discourse, in concerned or outraged editorials and features, or in the supposedly disinterested tracts emanating from the social sciences at those times when young people make their presence felt by going "out of bounds", by resisting through rituals, dressing strangely, striking bizarre attitudes, breaking rules, breaking bottles, windows, heads, issuing rhetorical challenges to the law." (HTML)

  • Teenage Sexuality, Body Politics and the Pedagogy of Display
    "Representations of youth in popular culture have a long and complex history and habitually serve as signposts through which American society registers its own crisis of meaning, vision, and community. Youth as a complex, shifting, and contradictory category is rarely narrated in the dominant public sphere through the diverse voices of the young. Prohibited from speaking as moral and political agents, youth become an empty category inhabited by the desires, fantasies, and interests of the adult world. This is not to suggest that youth don't speak, they are simply restricted from speaking in those spheres where public conversation shapes social policy and refused the power to make knowledge consequential with respect to their own individual and collective needs." (HTML)

  • Pedagogy and Praxis: Putting the Spotlight on the Process of Critical Thinking
    by Catherine H. Decker. "I realized I had to do something right away to teach my students what the difference was between a fact, an opinion, and a thesis that could be supported by logical reasons. Thus began my commitment to teaching critical thinking in the classroom--now always one of my pedagogical goals for each class. I believe that a key part of what I do in the classroom is teach students how to think so that they can maximize their learning of any subject and improve their writing skills." (HTML)

  • Practicing at Praxis: Doing Critical, Feminist Pedagogy
    by Rebecca Jarvis. "Using our authority to open up discussions and to provide space for diverse and even conflictive voices is intensely challenging. When I face resistance from students while also dealing with numerous institutional constraints, I recognize that my own power to effect social change through the classroom is limited. I like the way William Bigelow describes our position: "Until the economic system requires workers who are critical, cooperative, and deeply democratic, teachers' classroom efforts amount to a kind of low-intensity pedagogical war." (1996). (HTML)


  • New Pedagogy
    From UNESCO. Handy table contrasting the pedagogy of Instruction and Construction in the context of ICT in primary and secondary education. "It is essential to acknowledge the difference between instruction and construction. The former is the approach usually followed by traditional classroom teaching, the latter refers to a way of teaching that facilitated full exploitation of the potential of ICT but demands rethinking and a redefinition of the traditional approach in education as well as of the teacher-student relationship."
