HOW DOES BACKCHANNELING SUPPORT ACTIVE LEARNING?
Backchanneling can be a form of collaborative group learning. Students in a backchannel are highly involved, do things, think about what they're doing, and engage socially in knowledge construction. They ask questions, analyze, evaluate, discuss, debate, solve problems, shift roles between teaching and learning, and reflect.
