Teachers must often communicate with groups of individuals (e.g. department, student club, administration, etc.) via email. Using an email address book, you may establish groups for quick addressing and mailing. Each individual can be in be in one or more groups.
Electronic discussion groups offer great opportunities for extended asynchronous dialog between students and teachers. A teacher may start a discussion thread and require students to post their thoughts, as well as comments on the postings of others. Electronic discussion groups should always be moderated by the teacher.
There are many benefits and concerns when it comes to technology in the classroom. Benefits can include quick information spread to the entire classroom and their parents, and the concerns can be the very same. If and when the information is negative, teachers must handle this appropriately. If the teacher learns how to be an "owner" of certain pages on the internet, perhaps he/she could prevent some of the "bad/inappropriate" information that is bound to escape from the classroom.
"Chat rooms" and e-learning systems allow multiple users to communicate at the same time. This can provide teachers with data to make formative assessments. For example, a teacher can pose a question and give students time to form their responses. When given the signal, students enter their comments and instantly the teacher can receive their replies and assess their understanding.
Participation in class discussions have strong benefits when using technology. It is entirely more easy to see who and how students are actively participating in classroom discussion and/ or questions posed by the teacher. Also, when students are responding to each other's questions, they are helping their peers build knowledge and critically think, spiking their schema. Some students might not feel comfortable speaking out in the classroom and would jump at the thought of being able to type their opinion instead of sharing out orally. This type of participation can absolutely encourage great discussion and questions.
