Facebook is a well-known social networking site with facilities for communication and sharing.
For the purposes of the project we have created a closed Facebook, which can be accessed by following this link; this group is only for Project Participants but the screenshot below offers you a glimpse:
We envisage the group as a space for communication, mostly between the students while they work on the scenarios. However, we are going to use it to share important information with the students, such deadline reminders, links to resources or technologies, and updates from the website.
We also hope to be able to use the space to collect samples of students’ interactions (of course after having requested consent from them) for analysis. We believe this can give us insights into cross-cultural collaboration and communication strategies, which can help us draw conclusions for teaching and learning practices.
