  • Designing activities that promote cognitive dissonance about aspects of behavioral theoryDifficult to apply operant conditioning concepts to real-life situationsUse of increasingly complex case studies – can be applied to any disciplines – forced them to work with each others’ ideasLabel where you think there might be mental states involvedLabel the antecedents – behavior - reward

    2. 2. A tale of three activities<br />Our goal<br />Explore students’ use of the iPads<br />iPad may not be “required”<br />Use it in pedagogically sound ways<br />Organizing principle<br />Pedagogical goal<br />Collaborative approach<br />Context<br />2 Education Graduate Level courses<br />1 Education Undergraduate course<br />1<br />jdanish@indiana.edu | www.joshuadanish.com | @jdanish<br />
    3. 3. Activity 1: Model and Report<br />Pedagogical goal: <br />Help students apply the model (activity triangle) to their research topics<br />Challenge them to reflect on their theoretical choices<br />Collaboration: <br />Cycle through tasks<br />Model, feedback, report<br />2<br />jdanish@indiana.edu | www.joshuadanish.com | @jdanish<br />

    5. 5. Activity 1: Model and Report<br />Pedagogical goal: <br />Help students apply the model (activity triangle) to their research topics<br />Challenge them to reflect on their theoretical choices<br />Collaboration: <br />Cycle through tasks<br />Model, feedback, report<br />Outcomes<br />Richer models and discussion<br />More cross-group discussion<br />Positive feedback<br />The iPad<br />Supported easier templating, sharing, reporting<br />4<br />jdanish@indiana.edu | www.joshuadanish.com | @jdanish<br />
    6. 6. Activity 2: Video Analysis<br />Pedagogical goal<br />Challenge students to apply the theories to messy classroom (video) data<br />Collaboration<br />Via a blog<br />Intentionally independent<br />Individual pace<br />More detailed comments<br />Outcomes<br />More voices, more details noticed<br />Some students felt isolated<br />The iPad<br />Great media player<br />Some challenges typing (students wanted to use laptops)<br />5<br />jdanish@indiana.edu | www.joshuadanish.com | @jdanish<br />
    7. 7. Activity 3: Markup and Pass<br />Pedagogical goal<br />Challenging students’ assumptions of theories as applied in real-life situations<br />Collaboration<br />Students marked observations on Airsketch<br />Pass to group members and build on previous ideas<br />Outcomes<br />Challenging assumptions<br />Resolving cognitive conflict<br />Application of theory in practice<br />I-pad role<br />Ease of finger-drawing & passing around<br />Adding color, saving, submitting <br />P R<br />6<br />jdanish@indiana.edu | www.joshuadanish.com | @jdanish<br />

    9. 9. Takeaway…<br />If there’s an app for that<br />If typing is minimal<br />Then<br />Supports easy, fluid collaboration<br />Supports sharing of ideas<br />So, we’d like to see<br />Richer collaboration features<br />Easier sharing, passing of content<br />Easier input<br />8<br />jdanish@indiana.edu | www.joshuadanish.com | @jdanish<br />
