Session 2: Forums as a playful space
This session will continue to explore your experience of using online learning forums. It will also help you to recognise the ways in which they can support your learning.
In particular, it will begin to help you think about online learning forums as playful spaces where you can bounce ideas off other learners and develop your learning through getting involved.
By the end of this session, you should be able to:
- understand how your past experience of writing in learning contexts (such as school or college) influences how you think about the writing process
- recognise how ‘play’ can be a useful story of forum writing
- understand what it means to be playful with words, sections of text, images and experiences on forums.
