Sensitizing STs to different institutional contexts can promote reflectivity

Bilateral social and cultural appreciation required
Data Collection Instrument:
Missed or failed instances of communication in telecollaboration
vs. learning opportunities
or teaching moments
"My hope is, is that as a consequence of this event this ends up being what's called a
'teachable moment',
where all of us instead of pumping up the volume spend a little more time listening to each other and try to focus on how we can generally improve relations between police officers and minority communities, and that instead of flinging accusations we can all be a little more reflective in terms of what we can do to contribute to more unity."

Sera & Samed, could you please let us know
how you are faring accessing the Google Doc?
Are you able to access this website at all?: http://drive.google.com

Hi Samed,
We've outlined everything in the
Google Doc
Can you not access it?
If not, perhaps I can just email you what we have now.
SamedMarch 5, 2014 at 10:48 PM
Could we have how the project will go as bullet points?
A step by step procedure would be great.

Final Task Reflections
CMC Data (blogs)
Different types of hegemonies
Affordances of technology in different geographical, social, political contexts:
“instrument of equality or stratification, individualism or collectivism, freedom or oppression”
Focus on social justice: Creating a "supranational community of learners"
"These features suggest that
action research
classroom ethnography
can be
profitably combined
, either as successive stages of research or, more interestingly, as parallel or integrated research activities.”

Initial open coding

thematic grouping
A process code is "a word or phrase which captures action”
“A code in qualitative inquiry is most often a word or short phrase that symbolically assigns a summative, salient, essence-capturing, and/or evocative attribute for a portion of language-based or visual data.”

[...] I also agree that we need to find an

build a community

that everyone will work with their partners in their own institute and there won't be much cross institutional collaboration. [...]"
"[...] I just sent another email to my students asking them to
decide on their groups asap
and I asked them to notify their group members in
TC by email.
I hope that they would make their decision by tomorrow the latest. All BOUN students also have posted their podcasts on Google Sites I believe. I agree that attempting to
migrate Google Sites content to another site would be confusing
. Let's stay there.
Hi Jeltje,
Team 3
[M, S, and F]
We are sending all of our best regards and hope you and your classmates are safe and well.
Also, if those means communication don't work for you, maybe we can use a different email address to contact you at? Or maybe Facebook chat if you have access.
Please let us know
what is the best way to be in contact with you.
We just wanted to check in and see how things are going for you in Turkey. Also,
considering our communication and our upcoming tasks,
wondering what you can and cannot access at this time.
Can you access your
Gmail account and our Weebly site
I asked her if it was ok to email her students about the situation, and she said yes. (I didn't know whether this might be too upsetting or not.) So go ahead...
look at this as a teaching/learning moment
"[...] This is an
opportunity to touch base with your global partners and see how they are.
I've been checking in with my instructional counterpart, and [she] tells me that they've been out on the street protesting for quite some time now [...] The elections are on Sunday, and she thinks things will be calming down.
"[...] As far as I know,
officially, we can't access twitter and youtube
right now but most people access both through VPN.
I still can't access our google [sites]
from home, though
Hopefully, my students's final projects won't be effected too much technologically. It is just really hard here to concentrate and get some work done. Yesterday, in class, students wanted to talk about the bans and the election results. So, I think
if they receive emails from TC students
about the situation in Turkey, this would be a
great chance for bonding :)

Conduct weekly check-ins with Global Teams
to “[a]llow students to build a new connection with themselves or with others [...] (that is through indirect doing or observing)” and by having students reflect on these stories (Fink, 2013, p. 170)
Use needs analysis
as point of departure for
chronicling teaching moments
related to
Context, Setting, Situated Activity,

can encourage self-directed learning by having STs “think toward the future and identify what else they need or want to learn, that is
develop a
learning agenda
” (Fink, 2013, p. 160, italics in original)
Rate progress
of virtual communities of practice (Dooly, 2009) on scale with qualitative comments indicating areas for improvement
Stimulate critical thinking

of STs in telecollaboration (Dooly, 2010)
on telecollaborative processes in weekly logs/final tasks (e.g., Furstenberg and Levet, 2010) were
inconsistent and insufficient

"[...] Both
twitter and facebook are banned
right now. Facebook might be banned tomorrow but I don't think that these bans will last long. The elections are on Sunday, we'll see what happens afterwards. My students mainly
will be working with blogs, Google docs and wikis
. I expect things to calm down by next week anyway. And yes, this could be a
good opportunity for your students to inquire about Turkey
. I don't think it would be too upsetting."

I don't think I know what exactly they are planning to do yet. One of my groups wants to do screencasts, and I wonder if this would be

where my students could inquire a bit more about the situation in Turkey? Or is this inappropriate/too upsetting for you and your students? [...]"
