  • 8. Online Student “Talk” (for rubrics) from Susan Lowes from the Teachers College at Columbia University: •Disputational Talk - assertions are made in the post followed by counter assertions (arguments) •Cumulative Talk - post says something. Somebody adds to it. •Exploratory Talk - post presents new information. Different ideas are discussed before a decision is reached. This is the optimal threaded discussion talk, but doesn't happen often.
  • 9. Online Collaboration of students is a new area for teachers. It not only creates yet another place that teachers must monitor, but the benefits outweigh the additional work! Students can, and in most cases will, build their teamwork skills as well as build upon a new sense of responsibility. Try just one of these types of online collaboration, you’ll enjoy…and your students will too!
