Informal Learning and Teacher Training on the Web: User Perceptions of Two Italian Online Communities for Teachers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

It is well-known that learning is a field that embraces not only dedicated teaching environments, but also informal contexts: it is worth considering how much we learn from everyday situations such as exchanges with family and friends, travel and surfing on the Web. This paper compares the perceptions of informal web learning reported by the users of two Italian professional communities: “Orizzonte Scuola” and “La Scuola che Funziona”. We adopted a quantitative-qualitative research methodology, first administering an online questionnaire (320 responses) and secondly conducting 24 structured interviews.
