After reading and considering the different roles an online instructor plays I believe that under the Pedagogical Role I will play the course designer, feedback giver, and interaction facilitator. I believe the module will have a variety of activities to engage the students and my instructions should provide the detailed instructions that are required in the absence of “real time interaction.” The module will be a hybrid course which will give me the opportunity to give face to face feedback in addition to the conversation that will be provided through the discussion boards. I will definitely be a interaction facilitator with the discussion boards because 8th graders will need a lot of guidance to make the conversation valid. I do not believe I will be a profession inspirer simply because of the age group I teach. 8th graders do think about different career fields but I do not see a connection with the content of the module. I think it makes more sense for them to think about how they can use the skills in connection with their core classes. Under the Managerial Role I will play the role of Conference Manager and Organizer and Planner. As stated above, 8th graders need a great deal of guidance when it comes to discussions. I have tried using blogs before with the same age group and the responses were less than productive! I know that whether online or face to face 8th graders require clear guidelines and a well organized lesson is a must! I believe the social role will be easier in the hybrid environment. I have already built the connections with my students. They know my skillset and are familiar with my enthusiasm for the subject! Under Technical Roles I will play all three of the noted roles: technical coordinator, media designer/developer, and technology integrator. I have used Schoology and other management systems and I am very comfortable using a variety of multimedia components teaching face to face. So I do not foresee having any challenges in the technical roles – but you never know!
