Using Discord for Education and Learning
Updated: Jul 30, 2021
This blog is part of a project to investigate and experiment with the use of technology for education and learning support. Especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers and families depend on tech tools for remote and outside-the-classroom learning. For the next several weeks, I will look at the use and applications of Discord for education.
Here are some of the things I might explore:
What is Discord and how does it work?
How is Discord used by teachers as a formal learning tool?
How are students using Discord?
What are some emerging or unexpected uses of Discord?
This is not a complete or definitive list of goals, but rather a set of initial questions I have in mind at the beginning of this project. As I learn more about Discord and its uses for education, I will share what I discover along the way, including examples, tips, and additional questions.
