It is wonderful to speculate. I suspect, much like his colleague Ivan Illlich, Freire would have been pragmatic in his use of digital technology.

I often hear and believe in the saying “We are in the improvement business, not the perfection business” as it relates to our role as educators and the impact we have on students. But what about us as lead learners? Educators must live by this saying as well.

What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) is an excellent resource for educators interested in the link between research and practice. As part of the Institute for Education Sciences, the WWC reviews and summarizes primary research on an array of educational policy and practice. Everyone involved in education should have this bookmarked.

The Guilded Age: Professional Learning Communities in Education

The Guilded Age: Professional Learning Communities in Education | New Learning - Ny læring | Scoop.it
By Walter McKenzie A millennium ago, artists and artisans formed guilds to share expertise and support one another in highly-skilled professional practice. These vibrant learning communities sustained artistry and craftsmanship through the dark ages when centers of learning were exclusive and rare. Much like these medieval guilds, professional learning communities (PLCs) provide a new dimension to professional development as educators flock around high-interest needs and topics.

Using wikis for online group projects: Student and tutor perspectives

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, October 21, 11:35 PM
Abstract


This paper presents a study of the use of wikis to support online group projects in two courses at the UK Open University. The research aimed to investigate the effectiveness of a wiki in supporting (i) student collaboration and (ii) tutors’ marking of the students’ collaborative work. The paper uses the main factors previously identified by the technology acceptance model (TAM) as a starting point to examine and discuss the experiences of these two very different user groups: students and tutors. Data was gathered from students via a survey and from tutors via a range of methods. The findings suggest that, when used in tandem with an online forum, the wiki was a valuable tool for groups of students developing a shared resource. As previous studies using the TAM have shown, usefulness and ease of use were both important to students’ acceptance of the wiki. However, the use of a wiki in this context was less well-received by tutors, because it led to an increase in their workload in assessing the quality of students’ collaborative processes. It was possible to reduce the tutor workload by introducing a greater degree of structure in the students’ tasks. We conclude that when introducing collaborative technologies to support assessed group projects, the perceptions and needs of both students and tutors should be carefully considered.
