Gordon and Plourde, UD WFI Gordon and Plourde, UD WFI Presentation Transcript

  • Creating a learning community. . .And opening it to the world Richard Gordon, IT Communication Group Mathieu Plourde, IT Academic Technology Services
  • Creating a learning community. . .And opening it to the world Richard Gordon, Computer and Information Sciences Mathieu Plourde, School of Education
  • This is what we do when weactually teach.• Neither of us use one monolithic tool.• We both use individual tools as building blocks— linked from one starting place.• Technology must advance learning objectives!• Richard: Undergraduate class -> learning community• Mathieu: Opening a graduate “learning community” to the world Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 3
  • Forging a learning community• Diverse group of students, multiple majors, in CISC355 (Ethics) & CISC356 (IP)• Community and Collaboration: • Share discoveries with each other • Answer each other’s questions • Work together in small (and larger) problem-solving groups• If tech won’t help with this, I discard it. Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 4
  • Simple things• What are some of the common sense steps you take to build community?• My list includes (but is not limited to) • Learn everyone’s name. • Call on students by name. • Score assignments within one week – if possible by next class meeting. • Respond politely and publicly to online posts. Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 5
  • The Usual Suspects• E-Home • One place that links to all other tools—a landing place.• Discussion• Collaboration• Sharing• Review & Accountability Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 6
  • The Usual Suspects• E-Home (landing place): Sakai (or Canvas)• Discussion: Google Groups (or Sakai Forums, or a PHPBB, or ….)• Collaboration: Google Sites & Drive (or Canvas Pages or Sakai Wiki or….); Gore 218• Sharing: Google Drive, Sakai Resources, etc.• Review & Accountability: Android Attendance App, UD Capture, Quizzes Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 7
  • Accountability and Community• Technology makes me more accountable to my students at the same time it makes them more accountable to me—and each other.• “You’re all responsible for all the reading and what happens in class every day.”• “We are all responsible for advancing each other’s understanding.” Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 8
  • Accountability and Community• On Line Discussion (Google Groups or ….)• You can’t just spout what you want.• Graded assignments – with a published rubric• Responsible to each other: Comment on each others’ postings.• Responsible to each other: Summarize, provide basic biblio info, build points logically, and invite discussion. Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 9
  • Accountability and Community• Sakai quizzes due at class time: • Are you prepped for discussion?• UDCapture: part of the class culture • Did I miss anything important?• Android Attendance App • Miss class? Responsible to add to the online discussion to keep quiz credit. • Backend spreadsheet to help track. Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 10
  • Accountability and Community• Use Sakai Resources to share slides. • Review material from class or UDCapture• Collaboration: students responsible to each other • Google Docs (or similar tools): shared note-taking (in- class, out-of-class) • Google Sites: publish research to rest of class • Gore 218: • ATS wants me to talk about the technology. • The students would want me to tell about the chairs. Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 11
  • Accountability and Community• Tried other things, too. For example, Diigo: • Social bookmarking or shared bookmarking/bibliographic tools – would keep for a research or grad class • Accountable for sharing research with each other • Undergrads got confused by using two tools to share research and commentary on the research…. Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 12
  • Tools for building Community• When we blend in-person and on-line elements to build our classes into learning communities, we enhance the value of our students’ education and experience.• When I select tech tools, I try to keep that in mind.• During question time, or afterwards, I’ll gladly answer any questions about what I do…. Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 13
  • It’s time for Mathieu Plourde• My undergrad classes—build the group into a community.• Mathieu’s grad classes—look outward—look at the class’s place in the larger open learning community. Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 14
