      This article explores the importance of analysis of instructional design which seems to be often downplayed particularly in distance learning. ADDIE, REVIT have been considered when evaluating whether the training was meaningful or not and from that a central report was extracted and may prove useful in the development of similar e-learning situations for adult learning.

      Diverse perspectives of 'collaborative learning'

    1. Spider Web Discussion is an adaptation of the Socratic seminar in that it puts students squarely in the center of the learning process, with the teacher as a silent observer and recorder of what s/he sees students saying and doing during the discussion. Her method is used when the teacher wants students to collaboratively discuss and make meaning of a particular learning concept

      Spider web discussions for collaborative learning

    1. Record your observations 2 Share with fellow naturalists 3 Discuss your findings

      inaturalist website- really cool place to upload nature pics and correspond in discussions with others about identifying the plant or animal species

    1. Project Noah was created to provide people of all ages with a simple, easy-to-use way to share their experiences with wildlife. By encouraging your students to share their observations and contribute to Project Noah missions, you not only help students to reconnect with nature, you provide them with real opportunities to make a difference.

      Looks like a great project to get involved in! Very collaborative (both in the classroom and in online), plus integrate technology while having students explore nature

    1. Having students use self and peer evaluation sheets proved to be beneficial. When they were able to stop and reflect on the work they and their peers did, they were able to identify what was going well and what could be improved. I

      A teacher does a study on collaborative learning and reports her findings: assign specific jobs, determine gender balance of group, self and peer evaluation tools

    1. Collaboration had the same results via technology as in person, increased learning opportunities.

      Wow! I did not know this! I would think that in person collaboration produced greater results, but this is not the case. Great point of how collaboration online can be just as effective!

    2. Rather than spending a lot of time designing an artificial scenario, use inspiration from everyday problems. Real world problems can be used to facilitate project-based learning and often have the right scope for collaborative learning.

      Use real-world problems, not "artificial scenarios" for collaborative learning

    3. Decomposing a difficult task into parts to saves time. You can then assign different roles.

      Assigning different tasks/jobs to each member of the group

    4. Small groups of 3 or less lack enough diversity and may not allow divergent thinking to occur. Groups that are too large create ‘freeloading’ where not all members participate. A moderate size group of 4-5 is ideal.

      goof point about group size for collaborative learning (4-5 students in one group)

    1. Lev Vygotsky’s seminal work asserted that social interaction is a fundamental aspect of learning. And if he were alive today, he would most likely agree with the saying “two minds are better than one.” He might add, “Better yet, how about three or four?”

      Vygotsky- social interaction is fundamental in learning- group work is the perfect way to do this- 2 heads are better than one:)

    1. In math, four times a year, each student is given a set of values or codes to substitute in the equations so that even though the students are working together, they have to focus on the mathematical process and not just the “right answer.” In English, the discussions are open-ended, allowing for multiple right answers.

      Yes! This is how I plan to teach science. I will give them questions but they have to find the answers.

    1. encourages students to “steal” and cite ideas from each other’s hypothes.is annotations

      This is a neat idea, but do you think that this inhibits some of the students from annotating to their full potential? If I had a great idea, I might save it for myself instead of having someone else "steal" it.
