  16. 16. “Discussion posts …were analyzed for cognitive presence using the Community of Inquiry framework. [Relatively] high levels of Integration level cognitive activity were observed... This was most likely due to the design of the discussion prompts and expectations used to frame student participation. The questions were open-ended, and students were expected to use reference materials to construct their responses…85% were coded as scientifically accurate. This reinforces reports from previous literature that the online environment is conducive to reflective and careful contributions by participants. “ David Randle, AMNH (2013 TC doctoral dissertation)

  55. 55. Participant Feedback on the MIBO “I am in the bubble of San Francisco, and getting exposure to teachers throughout the country is really valuable, hearing what they are saying.” “There were some responding [on the discussion forum] from areas where evolution is not well-received, and so they talked about how they struggle with their administration and communities...” “You can hear the voice of someone chiming in from...across the country, and that is sort of cool.”
