Internet usage represents a major shift in educational psychology and pedagogy. Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

“...[O]n campus, there is fundamental challenge to...the model of pedagogy. Specifically, there is a widening gap between the model of learning offered by many...universities [schools] and the natural way that young people who have grown up digital best learn.” (Tapscott, 2009) Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

If we’re not familiar with or using these tools, we’re not connecting with students. Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

Asynchronous activities: Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

Vlogs (for assignments, quizzes, or tests) Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

Storytelling Development • Pre-select learning objectives • Based on learning objectives, create rubric for grading (“must include X and Y story/prosodic elements,” “must be about topic X or Y,” etc.) • Assigns students a topic and a timeframe to complete the assignment • Students produce and post 2–5 min vlogs • Arrange immediate feedback loop Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

“Reading” Comprehension • Pre-select learning objectives • Based on learning objectives, create rubric for grading (“must include X and Y linguistic elements,” “must demonstrate X and Y prosodic attributes,” etc.) • Teacher produces story (targeting specific linguistic or prosodic aspects) • Students retell/create the story in a vlog • Arrange immediate feedback loop Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

How is this beneficial? Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

• multiple opportunities for producing/ why how creating functional language • allows for consistent evaluation by use of rubric for assignment, can give specific feedback/recommendations for additional work in X, Y, and Z areas • takes advantage of canvases on which they’re already used to producing • entertaining and fun Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

• allows for broad creativity within specifications of the assignment • less overhead (students produce artifacts, not teachers) • allows teachers to view micro/macro trends (what is consistently accurate/not accurate) • focuses teachers on scaffolding, not fingerpointing • builds higher level functional learning Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

What are the constraints? Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

• prohibitive access to technologies (webcams, broadband internet, etc.) • prohibitive access to social media/ networking sites: YouTube, Facebook, etc. Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham
