Abstract/摘要:

Peer learning is a pedagogic method which effectively improves activeness of participants during communication. In the present study, we introduce the experience of establishing peer learning activity between distance participants of an international online Cross-cultural communication class by sharing digital information in the group chat. Non-native participants successfully understood the paralinguistic information transmitted by the digital information from native participants and therefore they could effectively participate in the communication. Our experience indicates that paralinguistic information is the essential glue of Cross-cultural distance communication, and these symbolic and rapid electronic information resources played an active role in Cross-cultural discussion.

母语者与非母语者在跨文化讨论中是否能顺利形成互助合作学习,除了语言能力的影响,能够引起参加者情感共鸣的副语言信息也是非常重要的因素。本文介绍了在远程讨论课中由于物理空间间隔造成面对面副语言信息沟通缺失的情况下,不同语言能力的参加者通过在移动终端共享图片信息的方式成功构建了远程同侪合作学习的课堂实践经验,证明了通过传递电子符号可以为远程讨论提供有效的信息共享,从而推进课堂互动,提高教学质量。
