During a research process that began as a way to see how to motivate students and empower them, it was found that creating a community is the best way for all involved to get a better and stronger sense of community. Parents, teachers, and students can all come together to make the experience a more worthwhile one for all involved. The education system would do well to have a community like this, as everybody feels that they are a part of something.
- Trying to understand what makes a student work best is something that I have been trying to incorporate.
- You can make the connection between parents and students, as well as other teachers.
- Encouraging open communication in the online community as well is a great way to open up lines of communication.
“And what I found as I dug in was that my understanding of community process was applicable, yet rudimentary—it was like a language without words.”
