How Online Communication Tools Support Collegiality in Professional Learning with Drs. Fahriy Altinay Aksal and Zehra Altinay Gazi

Professional learning relies on individual, institutional categories that encapsulate sharing exchanging ideas, collaboration, and negotiation for development. Technology becomes a tool to construct knowledge by integrating cultural, historical experiences of learners. In this respect, there is an importance of learning how to be a colleague for enhancing professional learning. Collegiality is one of the key elements that foster professional development. Therefore, integration of online communication tools as a medium for collegial activities put forward professional learning. In this review, exchanging ideas, negotiation through technology as online communication tools make the roots of collegiality for the continual learning as professional learning. Collegiality, professional learning, online communication tools and CHAT theory (cultural, historical, activity theory) are discussed in order to reveal the importance of their connections in the co-construction of knowledge.
