    1. Collaborative Learning Chadia Abras PhD

    2. Outline • Strategies for Active Learning & Critical Thinking • Why Collaborate? • Engaged Learning • Problem-Based Learning • Group Dynamics • Tools for Collaboration • WIKIs • Weblogs • Image Repositories • Video Streaming • Reusable Learning Objects • Interactive Web 2.0 Tools • Resources

    3. Active Learning & Critical Thinking Active Learning: • Activities promote • Analysis • Synthesis • Evaluation Critical Thinking • Inquisitive • Well-informed • Reasoned • Open-minded • Reflective • Follows sound deductive reasoning

    4. Strategies for Active Learning & Critical Thinking Elements: Talking / Listening/ Writing/ Reading/ Reflecting Categories: • Individual activities • Cooperative learning • paired activities • informal small groups • cooperative student projects • Problem-Based Learning Strategies: • Lecture • Case study • Team-based learning • Discussion • Media • Humor • Games

    5. Why Collaborate? • Community in the classroom is created through: • Group activities • Collaborative work • Group projects • Creates connections • Increases learning • Accommodates certain learning styles

    6. Engaged Learning Interaction is central to Collaborative Learning: • Knowledge / Experience • Personal interpretation of knowledge • Active process / Experience • Multiple perspectives

    7. Problem-Based Learning • Engaged learning continuum • Lifelong learning : • intellectual curiosity • confidence • engagement • Based on interaction and meaningful learning

    8. Engaged Learning Model ( Conrad & Donaldson, 2004, p. 6) CP EL PBL Collaboration Constructivist Principles + Problem-Based Learning = Engaged Learning Environment

    9. Group Dynamics Informal Groups: • Free • Unstructured • Time consuming Formal Groups: • Instructor assigned • Leader as savior of the group • Cooperation of the members • Tolerance of frustration • Focus on the task at hand • Hidden within each group is an irrational group • Size should be limited to no more than 7 • Meet often to keep the cohesiveness

    10. Collaborative Work Model

    11. Web 2.0 Tools for Collaboration • Wikis • Discussion Boards • Weblogs / Blogs • Document sharing • Image repositories • Video sharing • Music Sharing • Reusable learning objects

    12. WIKI What is a WIKI • Wikispaces:http://www.wikispaces.com/ • Twiki:http://twiki.org/ • Example of how to use a wiki • Composition builder • Story builder • Collaboration on a science experiment 12

    13. Weblog / Blogs • Word Press: http://wordpress.com/ • Blogger:http://www.blogger.com/home?pli=1 • Example of how to use a blog. • Journal • Build on a discussion • Get to know each other • Travel log (Internet travel) 13

    14. Microblogging • Twitter: http://twitter.com/ • Examples on use: • Polling • Sharing immediate content • Affecting change • Gathering content • Assessment 14

    15. Document & Web Sharing • Del.icio.us: http://www.delicious.com • Bookmarking • Tagging • Google document share: https://docs.google.com/?pli=1#home • Sharing files in the cloud • Examples for applications: • Research • Annotations (Zotero) • Document sharing for group editing 15

    16. Tagging • Flickr • YouTube • De.lici.ous • LMS (some) • Examples of use: • Easy retrieval of documents • Information management 16

    17. Image Sharing • Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/ • Picasa : https://picasaweb.google.com/home • Create a project • Share images • Create an image log of travel • Create an image log of Internet surfing • Theories and approaches satisfied • Examples from the participants? 17

    18. Video Sharing • Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/ • YouTube: http://www.youtube.com • Share videos with the class • Create a digital story of a project • Create a digital story of your life 18
