When exploring digital education I have mainly explored the learner and the use of technology. The role and identity of the teacher is important in regard to the body language used and the identity of the educator. In the last block we looked at Cyberculture and the idea of AI delivering material to students but the lack of charismatic qualities can have an affect on learning…Robert Nelson in the ‘Body and presence in learning and teaching’ explains this in an intriguing video attached.
“The use of the body is more for encouraging participation, with gestures of community and belonging rather than the performative but that isn’t what comes to mind when people think of teacher using their bodies” Robert Nelson
