Computer Mediated Communication
  • Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) is any form
    of communication between two or more individual
    people who interact and/or influence each other
    via separate computers through the Internet or a
    network connection - using social software. CMC
    does not include the methods by which two
    computers communicate, but rather how people
    communicate via computers.

  • Why CMC?

5
CMC
  • CMC promotes self-discipline and requires
    students to take more responsibility for their
    own learning. Using CMC, instructors can vary a
    course's instructional design to include
    everything from structured projects to open
    projects in which students are free to work on
    "messy"--but authentic--problem solving.

6
CMC
  • Moreover, CMC promotes an equalization of users.
    Because CMC is, at present, primarily text-only,
    the consequent reduction in social cues leads to
    a protective ignorance surrounding a person's
    social roles, rank, and status. Further, it is
    impossible to know if another person took several
    hours to draft a one screen response, or several
    minutes.

CMC
  • Traditional classroom interaction places the
    teacher at the center of all activities as
    transmitter of knowledge and orchestrator of
    student interaction.
  • Even if students engage in collaborative small
    group tasks, the teacher is usually around and
    monitors students
