Abstract

This study of computer-mediated communication between 28 grade-eleven students and as many employees in a high-tech corporate setting examines the educational potential of electronic networks for building learning connections on a global basis. Using a critical analysis of excerpts from the electronic messages between the students and employees, three qualities of connection were identified. The exchanges exhibited strategies of immediacy, pedagogy, and, in one case, aberration. In the process of working on a journalism assignment using CMC, there also arose, for both students and employee, an element of responsibility in writing that might be thought to serve in the language development of both settings.
