Great tips on how to facilitate collaborative learning. Learners that work collaborativley are engaged in their learning and have better learning outcomes. 

Marina Cousins's curator insight, April 10, 2014 8:06 PM

I liked this article, as it highlighted to me the importance of collaborative learning is much better than individual learning.  As I have mentioned several times, the learning and assessment that takes place within my workplace has a strong behaviourist foundation of learning and repeating key words and actions to pass an assessment (it is a very individual approach to learning).

 

Many of my colleagues view this experience of learning & assessment in a negative way.  What are some of the ways to overcome this negative view of learning?

 

After reading this article, I will seriously consider using a collaborative learning style within my workplace (if I get the opportunity).  The advantage of using real world problems or clinical incidents is that it offers the learner the opportunitity to improve their critical thinking skills and problem-solving ability.  

 

Therefore, by using collaborative learning you can apply the following learning theories of cognitivism, constructivism, objectivism.

Hazel Kuveya's curator insight, April 10, 2014 9:22 PM

Keeping the groups at moderate levels will ensure an effective exchange of ideas and participation in all involved, I can echo the same statement that two heads are better than one. It is also interesting to learn that collaborative teams attain higher level thinking and preserve information for longer periods as compared to  their individual counterparts., yes the use of technology makes collaborative learning manageable.

"Innovative teaching happens more in environments where teachers collaborate. In schools where teachers report more frequent collaboration with one another on teaching practices, innovative teaching scores tend to be higher... Teachers told us that collaboration can be an important mechanism for sharing teaching practices and for mutual support toward improving them."

Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts

Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

If you were waiting for Google to release a screen-sharing feature inside the Hangout real-time collaboration platform, that time has come.

 

In the next 48 hours Google will be rolling out to all Google+ users the ability to screen-share during any hangout session.

 

From Christopher Johnson G+ post: "When we launched Hangouts with Extras last September, we wanted to test new features and get feedback from users.

 

We’ve learned a lot over the past few months, and today we’re rolling out a new Hangouts look and feel that incorporates some of the “extras,” and better reflects Google’s overall design ( http://goo.gl/gG1NA ).

 

Highlights include:

 

- Screensharing: share what’s on your computer screen with everyone in the hangout. This is the first of many extras we’re graduating to Hangouts proper.

 

- Bigger video: we’ve put more emphasis on the live video itself by optimizing white space and other screen elements."

Nielson Report: What's Really Happening on Social Networks

Nielson Report: What's Really Happening on Social Networks | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Interesting and very informative piece by Brian Solis for Social Media Today.

 

This is part 6 of a series of posts where Brian introduces his new Book The End of Business as Usual.  

 

I must tell you that if you haven't gotten a copy of this book, you should, it is excellent, timely and relevant!

 

To paraphrase - social media is becoming part of our cultural fabric and even as we witness businesses, governments,sports teams, and almost every organization socialize communication efforts today,

 

****much of what we see is merely the beginning of something that will one day become something far more important than the medium itself.

 

****it is about how people are spending their time, interacting and connecting with one another, and what happens as a result.

 

To demonstrate the point, there are some profound findings from the recently released Nielsen Social Media Report.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

 

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

Twitter provides a great opportunity to collaborate with educators outside of your local physical community. The exchange of ideas and perspectives can reenergize your career. “Twitter is often just the introduction — the virtual handshake that opens the door to a deeper collaboration”

An Infinite Collaborative Image Canvas: CanvasDropr

An Infinite Collaborative Image Canvas: CanvasDropr | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

CanvasDropr provides a virtually infinite online canvas on which you and your friends / contacts can easily add, position, resize and rotate photos and video clips at will.

CanvasDropr can be used to brainstorm around visual collections, to select and organize images, and to prepare visual portfolios or tours to share with others or to be published online. 

 

From the official site: "The center of the CanvasDropr idea is to work and collaborate on a so-called "Canvas".

 

The canvas can be shared by an unlimited amount of people, and changes made in the canvas are updated real-time in every user’s canvas.

 

Users can easily drag and drop new images directly from their desktop onto the canvas."

 

CanvasDrops allows you to text chat in real-time with other "collaborators" you have invited as well as to set permissions for what "public" users can edit or modify on a "public canvas.

 

It is possible to place photos and video clips coming from Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and Picasa or to import one simply by providing its URL. 

 

The final canvas can be shared on FB or Twitter, downloaded as an "image" or a .zip file containing all of its images and can also be "embedded" on any site or blog.

 

The service is free to use.

 

Check this video: http://vimeo.com/31591478

Don't Underestimate the Power of Social Networks

 

This piece was written by Oscar Berg (@oscarberg) for CMS Wire and curated by JanLGordon covering her topic "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond" on Scoopit.

 

I was especially drawn to this article in relation to Scoopit, as I know from discussions I've had with Guillaume Decugis, this very much speaks to his vision of what this platform could and should become.

 

**By sharing content and helping each other source, review and curate topics of interest, we stay informed, expand the conversation and contribute to others. It's like a collective intelligence of sorts.

 

**An essential part of community building is giving others credit if you repost their content and thanking them for posting it.

 

Intro:

 

"Since the dawn of time, primates have relied on social networks to help the whole group with their environments.

 

This of course applies to humans and our enterprises as well."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Understanding the Dynamic of Your Networks

 

Today we also have information technologies such as social software that anyone can use to build, nurture and make use of their informal networks.

 

**And as the informal networks become visible, they become more usable to both individuals and organizations

 

**as we can better understand their dynamics and how to make proper use of them.

 

**In an environment where change is business as usual and being

 

**more responsive, agile and innovative is the only way to adapt to the environment, who can afford not to understand the dynamics of networks and harness their power with the use of social technologies?

 

Why and for how long?
