Theme 1. “Communication Outside of Class”: Network.

Communicate inside class

Participants reported using Web 2.0 technologies as a networking tool.

Repeatedly, they described various methods of communicating with others. Participants

said these Web 2.0 technologies contributed to their enhanced experience of

communication within the classroom.

Keep in touch

The participants describe their abilities to communicate with one another. One

participant described the networking tools in the following terms: ―It was easier to

communicate

with

people.‖

(P18)

Another

participant

detailed:

  • MySpace

is

the

best

one to use for contacting anyone, as well as Google, Wiki and even You Tube.‖ (P29)

Study participants were positive about the presence of varied forms of networking or

communication made available to them using Web 2.0 technology tools: ―It (Web 2.0

tools) gives students another form of contact with the professor, outside sources, and

other students not typically achieved inside the classroom.‖ (P28) The school setting can

inhibit students from interacting with one another based on the classroom dynamic. One

participant details how these pressures and communication barriers are eliminated with

the use of Web 2.0 technology: ―With Facebook and YouTube, students can keep in

touch and communicate without feeling the pressure of school.‖ (P16)
