Abstract

最近,社群網絡網站的各種潛能在日常生活中已被廣泛討論。使用者生成內容是當前的話題,年輕一代已廣泛使用這些網站,因此,這並不讓人驚訝,並且有助於應用社群網絡網站在教育環境當中。由於此類網站原來的目的為社交和交友,所以可被用於學習型社區,並專注於共享、溝通、合作。本研究旨在了解教師們使用社交網絡網站,更具體說,從教師的角度發揮探討在教學過程之中,欲了解社群網絡網站的角色,教師的態度和信念與他們關注的問題。本研究訪談了老師們以及研究者撰寫了研究日誌。其結果是,這些教師認為社群網絡網站應用到教學過程中,可以激勵、連接和建立個人的專業網絡,同時提供真實的例子與教授各種技能。他們對社群網絡網站的態度是積極的、主動的、採納的、必要的、任務依賴型。他們關注的問題涉及版權、合適的行為、網際網路的安全、家長、可連性。建議未來的研究重點放在說不同語言之班級如何合作,以及本地教師不廣泛使用社群網絡網站於專業教學和學習之原因。
Recently, social network sites have been discussed in terms of a variety of potentials in people’s daily lives. As user-generated content is the topic of the day and the young generation have been widely using these sites, not surprisingly, it would be helpful to apply social networking sites in educational settings. Since the original purposes were networking and friending, it is possible to be used as a learning community which focuses on sharing, communication, and corporation. This study aimed at understanding the use of social network sites among school teachers, more specifically, the roles social network sites play in the teaching process, teacher attitudes and beliefs, and their concerns from a teacher’s perspective. Interviews were conducted with five teachers while a reflection journal was kept. As a result, these teachers think that applying social network sites to the teaching process can be motivating, connecting, and professionally networking; at the same time, authentic examples are shown and various skills are taught. Their attitudes toward social network sites are positive, proactive, adoptive, necessary, and task-dependent. Their concerns are related to copyright, proper behaviors, internet safety, parents, and accessibility. Finally, it is suggested that future studies focus on how classes speaking different languages collaborate with each other as well as the reason that local teachers do not extensively use social network sites to teaching and learning for professional purpose.
