  • User-Generated Education
  • The Problem
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04AhBnLk1-s
  • Should a student-centric, user-generated education be the predominant learning model for this era of the 21st Century?
  • The Protocol
    Technology-Enhanced Socratic Seminar
  • Socrates was convinced that the surest way attain
    reliable knowledge was through the practice of
    disciplined
    conversation
    He called this method dialectic.

  • Deeper understandingof complex ideas occurs through rigorously thoughtful dialogue.
    http://www.greece.k12.ny.us/instruction/ELA/SocraticSeminars/faqsaboutss.htm
  • What are Socratic Seminars?
    Highly motivatingform of intellectual and scholarly discourse.
  • An effective Socratic Seminar creates dialogue as opposed to debate.
  • An effective seminar consists of four interdependent elements:
    1. the textbeing considered
    2. the questionsraised
    3. the seminar leader, and
    4. the participants
  • A technology-enhanced Socratic Seminar also uses social media . . . More about this later.
  • The Question
    A Socratic Seminar opens with a
    Question
    posed by the leader or solicited from participants as they acquire more experience in seminars.
    Responses to the opening question generate new questions from the leader and participants, leading to new responses.

  • The Question
    An opening question
    has no right answer.
    http://www.greece.k12.ny.us/instruction/ELA/SocraticSeminars/faqsaboutss.htm
  • The Question
    An effective opening question leads participants back to the text as they speculate, evaluate, define, and clarify the issues involved. Responses to the opening question generate new questions

  • The Question
    Should a student-centric, user-generated education be the predominant learning model for this era of the 21st Century?
  • The Participants
    In a Socratic Seminar, participants carry the burden of responsibility for the quality of the seminar.
    There are three ways to do this:
    Studying
    Participating
    Sharing
    .
  • Dialogue is a skill of collaboration that enables groups to
    create
    collective
    thinking
  • The Text
    Socratic Seminar texts are chosen for richness in ideas, issues, values and their ability to stimulate dialogue.
    A good text raises important
    questions
    There are no right or wrong answers.
    At the end of successful Socratic Seminars, participants often leave with more questions than they brought with them.
