Conference Paper


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • Synchronous learning has the potential to provide literacy and essential skills training to Indigenous

    learners living in remote and isolated communities. Although there is considerable research completed in the area

    of internet-based learning technologies in general, there is very little research in the area of online synchronous

    learning opportunities for remote Indigenous learners. This paper presents the results and theoretical framework

    of the first and second phases of a four phase design-based research approach that aims to establish design

    principles to guide the future development of synchronous online literacy services for Indigenous learners living

    in remote Australian communities.
