Creating a learning community. . .

And opening it to the worldRichard Gordon, IT Communication Group

Richard Gordon, Computer and Information Sciences

Mathieu Plourde, School of Education

Creating a learning community. . .

And opening it to the world

This is what we do when we actually teach. Neither of us use one monolithic tool.

We both use individual tools as building blockslinked from one starting place.

Technology must advance learning objectives!

Richard: Undergraduate class -> learning community

Mathieu: Opening a graduate learning community to the world

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 3

Forging a learning community

Diverse group of students, multiple majors, in CISC355 (Ethics) & CISC356 (IP)

Community and Collaboration: Share discoveries with each other

Answer each others questions

Work together in small (and larger) problem-solving groups

If tech wont help with this, I discard it.

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 4

Simple things

What are some of the common sense steps you take to build community?

My list includes (but is not limited to) Learn everyones name.

Call on students by name.

Score assignments within one week if possible by next class meeting.

Respond politely and publicly to online posts.

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 6

The Usual Suspects

E-Home (landing place): Sakai (or Canvas)

Discussion: Google Groups (or Sakai Forums, or a PHPBB, or .)

Collaboration: Google Sites & Drive (or Canvas Pages or Sakai Wiki or.); Gore 218

Sharing: Google Drive, Sakai Resources, etc.

Review & Accountability: Android Attendance App, UD Capture, Quizzes

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 7

Accountability and Community

Technology makes me more accountable to my students at the same time it makes them more accountable to meand each other.

Youre all responsible for all the reading and what happens in class every day.

We are all responsible for advancing each others understanding.

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 8

Accountability and Community

On Line Discussion (Google Groups or .)

You cant just spout what you want.

Graded assignments with a published rubric

Responsible to each other: Comment on each others postings.

Responsible to each other: Summarize, provide basic biblio info, build points logically, and invite discussion.

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 9

Accountability and Community

Sakai quizzes due at class time: Are you prepped for discussion?

UDCapture: part of the class culture Did I miss anything important?

Android Attendance App Miss class? Responsible to add to the online discussion

to keep quiz credit.

Backend spreadsheet to help track.

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 10

Accountability and Community

Use Sakai Resources to share slides. Review material from class or UDCapture

Collaboration: students responsible to each other Google Docs (or similar tools): shared note-taking (in-

class, out-of-class)

Google Sites: publish research to rest of class

Gore 218: ATS wants me to talk about the technology.

The students would want me to tell about the chairs.

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 11

Accountability and Community

Tried other things, too. For example, Diigo: Social bookmarking or shared

bookmarking/bibliographic tools would keep for a research or grad class

Accountable for sharing research with each other

Undergrads got confused by using two tools to share research and commentary on the research.

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 12

Tools for building Community

When we blend in-person and on-line elements to build our classes into learning communities, we enhance the value of our students education and experience.

When I select tech tools, I try to keep that in mind.

During question time, or afterwards, Ill gladly answer any questions about what I do.

Gordon and Plourde, WFI2013, 2012-01-22 13
