    1. The text discusses the implementation of video-conferencing to provide mental health services to children with a history of emotional and behavioral concerns. 89% of sessions were delivered via tele-health video-conferencing. Rating: 7/10 Need a follow-up on impact of tele-health services on student behaviors/outcomes.

    1. The lesson plan template provided is a helpful tool for designing a basic lesson with adult learning concepts. Some of the lesson plan template is also a part of pedagogy, but some key elements reflect adult learning theory. For example, the section on Practice and Application encourages activities to transfer skills to new situations and concluded by a reflection activity. Given adult learners may have various goals for their learning, the segment addresses adult learning theory. The template could be used or adapted to begin designing around technological tools used for instruction as well. The template does seem to reflect a model of synchronous, face-to-face learning given it suggests the instructor move around the room to monitor progress and assist learners. Rating: 6/10

    1. synchronously online on Mondays, 5-6pm

      You mentioned in your email that these meetings could be recorded as needed. Could you elaborate on that?

    1. Many tasks worth completing require cooperation –yet crowdsourcing has largely focused on independent work. Distributed teams have always facedchallenges in cultural differences and coordination[60], but crowd collaboration now must createrapport over much shorter timescales(e.g., one hour) and possibly wider culturalor socioeconomic gaps

      In Kittur's example, synchronous collaboration describes a temporal aspect (timescale and tempo of the work) related to how the collaboration is structured or not.

      "Short periods of intense crowd collaboration call for fast teambuilding and may require the automatic assignment of group members to maximize collective intelligence."

    2. Finally, it will be amajor research undertaking to invent and describe the tasks and techniques that succeed with synchronous collaboration

      Could this be a theme of the SBTF time study?
