Collaborative Learning & Collective Knowledge with Technology
Issued by Concordia University
Designs learning experiences and environments that empower productive collaboration and collective knowledge generation [0.25]Additional Details
Two lesson plan drafts (created or revised from existing lessons) that promote student collaboration using technology or collective knowledge generation. One lesson makes use of a student wiki, Google Doc or similar tool that allows for collective knowledge creation. A second lesson makes use of one or more other collaborative technologies.
A 200-400 word summary/reflection is included at the end of each lesson, explaining how the lesson was built upon ideas of digital age collaboration and/or collective knowledge. Sources are cited. Specific ideas about the features and nature of collaboration are referenced.
Each lesson plan includes a thorough answer to each of the following questions: Who are the learners? What is the context? What do students need to know or be able to do? What authentic evidence will students need to provide to show that they learned what you wanted them to learn? What resources, activities, guidance and/or experiences will be used to help students learn? How will students get feedback throughout the learning experience? How will I evaluate the effectiveness of this lesson?
