Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Discussion
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Option One: Reflect on the required resources for Week Three and your personal and professional experiences in relation to the points conveyed in the resources. Review the hypothetical below and discuss the issues involved using the example questions as a guide.
Option Two: Develop a scenario that your classmates can consider to demonstrate how instructional design principles and theory influence the ethical practices of technology usage. For example, the scenario might relate to issues of copyright in educational media, accessibility of technology, or specific scenarios for design and instruction with technology. If you’re feeling especially creative and want to practice your eLearning design skills with emerging technologies, try writing your scenario to exemplify ethical usage of technology with Twine. Here is an example Twine story-scenario.
Hypothetical: Some of your learners are struggling with a concept in your class. You decide to use a “Google Hangout” study session and invite students who are struggling to attend for additional synchronous help. During the Hangout some of your students convey personal information about how and why they are struggling in class. Consider the ethical issues that might arise from the design of this synchronous study session. For example, could you record and reuse the Hangout for another class? Could you prevent students from recording and distributing the Hangout? How would you design the synchronous study session to exemplify and ensure ethical usage of the technology?
Guided Response: Reply to two or more classmates. Replies ought to respond to the hypothetical or developed scenarios by offering critical analysis of the ethics involved in the scenario, asking questions for elaboration, or providing additional resources to consider related to the topic of ethics and technology usage. In this and every discussion, for optimal engagement with your learning peers, you are encouraged to reengage in the discussion by replying to posts made in response to you by the instructor and peers
