  7. 7. PARTICIPATORY LEARNING IS COMMONPLACE “Since the current generation of college students has no memory of the historical moment before the advent of the Internet, we are suggesting that participatory learning as a practice is no longer exotic or new but a commonplace way of socializing and learning. For many, it seems entirely unremarkable.” The Future of Learning Institutions in a Digital Age by Cathy N. Davidson and David Theo Goldberg with the #ADEC22 assistance of Zoë Marie Jones. From the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Reports on Digital Media and Learning. MIT Press: Cambridge, Massachussets, 2009.

  12. 12. What is deep learning? “Deep learning — learning associated with higher- order cognitive tasks — is typically contrasted with rote memorization. Memorization may help students pass an exam, but it doesn’t necessarily expand students’ understanding of the world around them, help them make connections across disciplines, or promote the application of knowledge and skills in new situations.” The Heart of Student Success #ADEC22 http://www.cccsse.org/

  23. 23. Feedback on Use of VoiceThread • “I liked the voicethreads the best because it helped make me think in other ways and get different perspectives from my fellow students.” • “...created an environment for people to do well who don’t always do best in a classroom environment if they’re afraid to talk in class or if the class is run by a group of students who dominate the conversation.” • “... helped me to really understand the content we were learning and also get feedback from other students and from our professor as well.” #ADEC22

  37. 37. Student Interview Listen to the full 20-minute interview at: mpbreflections.blogspot.com/sharedresources #ADEC22
  38. 38. Student Comments: evidence of deep learning “In traditional lecture classes you feel like you are being forcefed the information, but in this class you felt like you were living the history in each of the learning units and truly connecting to the material.”
  39. 39. Student Comments: evidence of deep learning “I learned more than I ever thought I would. ... I will take some of the lessons I learned here with me for the rest of my life.”
  40. 40. Student Comments: evidence of deep learning “The material presented in this class prompted me to evaluate my experiences as a female in terms of my connections to females who have lived before me, females now and those who will soon arrive on the scene.”
  41. 41. Student Comments: evidence of deep learning “I have to admit it did take a little getting use to, and did require you to become a little more organized, BUT the richness in the information was a wonderful trade off. I feel as though I walked through the 1920's in Paris and was able to breathe in the atmosphere...”
  42. 42. Student Comments: evidence of deep learning “[The class] made me look at the images I see every day in a new way. I also liked the way that the class was set up. I think that more classes should be taught this way.”
  43. 43. Student Comments: evidence of deep learning “I really enjoyed the class and I understood the content a lot better than I would have in just a traditional classroom setting.”
