Module 4 – Post 2: Culturally inclusive e-learning environments

Constructing Shared Online Learning Environments for Indigenous Cultural Inclusiveness

I found this article very interesting because it addresses some of the key challenges in creating an online learning environment that is culturally inclusive for Indigenous Australians. A summary of various studies is provided that highlight some of the characteristics that should be present in online technologies that promote successful learning opportunities for Indigenous students. Other suggestions include possible online tools, such as journals, chat rooms, discussion board and work spaces allocated for group work, as a means to support Aboriginal students in distance education settings.

This resource would be useful for anyone wanting to learn the possibilities in incorporating certain technological tools in their course site to support Aboriginal students in an online class that is shared with other students from different cultural backgrounds.
