  1. 1. Student Structured Conferences Chapter 17 Amelia Villanueva
  2. 2. No other Mind tool facilitates constructive, social learning better than asynchronous discussion boards because they support reflection on what one knows and through communication comes conceptual change. David Jonassen Student Structured Conferences Discussion Boards

Synchronous Web Conferences Chat White Boarding Instant Messaging Video or Audio Conference Application Sharing
  4. 4. Asynchronous tools enable communication/ collaboration over a period of time through a " different time-different place " mode. These tools allow people to connect together at each person's own convenience and own schedule. Asynchronous Streaming Audio-Video Email Blogs Forum Web site links Narrated Slideshows Web Based Training Polls

  8. 8. Lack of Engagement caused by: P. 196-197 Poor Instruction Rubrics Classroom Culture Instructors explain participation in terms of number of postings. Rubrics are poorly constructed or non-existent Students won’t take issue With others’ Comments. Rebutting is not “fair”

  15. 15. Structured Student Conferences are changing the face of education as we have come to know it. Both asynchronous and synchronous conferencing are effective MindTools. As Jonassen notes, they “ engage learners in evaluating information, discussing options, problems solving, and justifying their decisions – all of which require critical thinking.”
