  • publication + discussion = engagement.

  • Wiki: Nope.

  • real-time feedback.

  • Blog: experiment with ways of managing feedback and feedbackexpectations.

Twitter assignment: Twitter activity (3%) and blog (7%)1. A new research tool: Twitter as a way of finding and sharing online information about energy issues #Scie2012. Some students fully engaged throughout, others only at the last minute, some scared to start3.Rhian Salmon is developing this idea for SCIE 211: refined assignment will be more structured, clearer and with reflective component

What teaching/learning context is the tool designed to address?

Alternatives to the tyranny of the essay: article reviews, informal reflection, quick responses

Participation in a wider conversation and creation of a learning community

What works/doesn’t work?

Use needs to be sufficiently incentivized and structured, but if students blog throughout the term most really enjoy it

Problems with different software products; need to moderate comments

Future directions?

More integration with role playing/simulations; experiments with different structures for student blogposts

Notable (https://www.notable.ac/) is an interactive note taking application.

Drawbacks: glitches with internet explorer; students can’t download notes; it is difficult to modify notes once posted

Future Directions: recording application (coordinated with slides) and transcription service.

  • Rationale (http://rationale.austhink.com/)is an argument diagramming tool designed to help students reason in a critical and structured way. It is also an essay planning tool.

  • Drawbacks: the programme can’t represent all possible argument patterns.

  • Future Directions (early 2014): dedicated ipad version; real time collaboration.
