2008 (English)In: Information Communication Technologies for Enhanced Education and Learning: Advanced Applications and Developments, IGI Global, 2008, 219-233 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Conducting a dialogue on the Web is a matter of linking thoughts in digital conversations. Dialogue differs from discussion by not being aimed at beating or convincing other participants in the conversation. The present chapter highlights group dialogues as conversations in which people learn with and from each other. Learning dialogues have the potential of developing the learners'capacities for critical thinking and complex problem solving. The model of dialogue competence is suggested in order to improve the linking of thoughts in web dialogues. The chapter concludes with considerations when developing dialogue-based communication forms for learning purposes and contributes to teachers' demand for more support in pedagogic and educational issues.
