Real-Time Collaborative Text-Based Group Discussion with Co-Meeting

Robin Good: Co-meeting is a real-time text-based group discussion tool. 

 

The key features of Co-meeting are:

 

1) Live-Typing Chat
Your text entry will be shown on screen character by character to the participants, so a text-based communication just like an actual verbal conversation is possible.

 

2) Multi-Threaded Discussion
Not only can multiple discussions be held concurrently, it is also possible for participants who join in midway and absentees to have the same level of discussion as participants.

 

3) Notes of real-time share
By simultaneously debating and sharing the minutes of the proceedings and preliminary information, additional work for information sharing is dramatically reduced.

 

From Lifehacker: "Remember Google Wave?

 

...Co-Meeting is a new web service that brings a lot of them back, including real-time, as-you're-typing conversations, document storage, in-line to-dos, notes, and meeting minutes, and more.


Co-Meeting borrows a lot of tricks from Google Wave, most notably the ability to have up to 30 people in one workspace at the same time, all typing and interacting with one another, updating documents, starting and answering comments and posts and threads, and in general just working together.

 

As everyone talks, one click turns any posted comment into a to-do item or a progress update to an existing to-do.

 

...The service even keeps track of where you left a conversation so you can get up to speed quickly when you return."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 3, 2013 2:22 PM

Useful summary of the fundamental characteristics of informal learning and how it relates to workplace learning. A plea largely to abandon formal training and replace it with informal learning. Although short on evidence, the presentation is high on intuitive appeal for those who are convinced of the power of social media for learning. (@pbsloep)

Work that matters [pdf]- a teachers guide to project based learning

Teacher's Guide to Project-based Learning.

This guide is for teachers. It explains how to design and run projects for students that begin with an enquiry and end with a tangible, publicly exhibited product.

 

There are six main sections:

 

Section 1: Introduction - explains what project-based learning is, and why more and more teachers are doing it.

 

Section 2: Inspiration - Shows the work that students created in five real life projects,

with some information about how the projects worked.

 

Section 3: Foundations - introduces the three keys to successful project-based learning: multiple drafts, critique, and exhibition.

 

Section 4: Execution - a guide to planning and running projects.

 

Section 5: Integration - explains how to build a ‘culture of excellence’, which will encourage students to do great work of lasting value.

 

Section 6: Conculsion - the final section wraps it all up.  (By Alec Patton)
