A Journey into the Teaching Experience

Forums: How can they be used in class?

Internet-Marketing-Forum-A forum is  a place where questions are asked by individuals and other people will reply to your questions. In my opinion a forum is best suited for students to communicate with each other regarding any problems which may come up. I think asking a question on a forum is better than asking on a blog since blogs are more informational with people commenting on the text posted by others. In a forum a student can ask a question and  he or she will get the different opinions of other students in his class and maybe from others in another school.

A forum could also be used for a discussion. The teacher can give out an initial topic and the students can discuss what they think about it, if they agree or disagree and so on. This can be regarded as an extension of the lesson since  we can see how deep the level of understanding of the students is and what needs to be corrected for the next lesson. The teacher can also participate by helping them figure out any difficulties which might arise or by getting back on topic if the discussion goes astray. I think a forum is an excellent way for students to learn, discover, and discuss any new issues introduced in class or any difficulties that come up whilst doing home work.
