ICT Tool Sharing

  1. 1. ICT Tool Sharing<br />Real time document collaboration with Etherpad<br />
  2. 2. The problem …<br />Our process (PBL)<br />Problem definition template<br />Encourage participation within class / within group<br />Facilitation Problem: Same students contribute regularly (motivation / confidence / prior knowledge / interest / mood / alertness)<br />Goal: Everyone contributes<br />
  3. 3. How can we achieve our goal?<br />The ideal ICT tool is<br />Socially engaging (more than just collaborative)<br />Low or no learning curve (intuitive)<br />Highly responsive (immediate feedback)<br />Easily accessible (one or two clicks)<br />Enable anonymous use (social safety)<br />
  4. 4. Collaboration Tool: Etherpad<br />
  5. 5. What does it do?<br />One click “Create public pad”<br />Enter your name … or don’t<br />Invite people with a C&P over IM, or send email<br />Collaboratively edit (highlight colours)<br />Chat room<br />Time slider<br />Change font for code<br />Fast forward and rewind changes (history)<br />Really Real Time (very responsive – cf. Google docs)<br />
  6. 6. Technical affordances<br />Multi-user<br />Quick creation and sharing of new Etherpad (easy)<br />Web based(connected)<br />Real time (fast)<br />Cut and paste or import and export (various formats)<br />Save multiple revisions (with tracking)<br />Infinite undo<br />
  7. 7. Social affordances<br />Multi user (social)<br />Anonymous users supported (protection)<br />Chat client built in (discursive) <br />Change colours (to suit yourself)<br />Immediate (key by key displayed)<br />Replay (who said what, who deleted what?)<br />
  8. 8. Pedagogical affordances<br />Social constructivist tool<br />Instructional management (pre-defined templates)<br />Any collaboration document can be produced in real time with “Teaching Guidance”<br />Synchronous/Asynchronous (reflection)<br />Encourage ‘quieter’ students (anonymous )<br />Divergent (chat/contributions)<br />
