CH 11: Learning Together on the Web Definition: Collaborative learning is a structured exchange between two or more participants designed to enhance achievement of the learning objectives Definition: Concurrency refers to the number of learners active in a e-course in the same time period
Guidelines for Implementation of Collaborative Learning 1.Make assignments that require collaboration among learners 2.Assign learners to groups in ways that optimize interaction 3.Structure group assignments around products or processes
Models for Productive Group Collaboration Jigsaw –Home teams & specialty sub-teams Structured Controversy –Pros & cons argumentation Seven-Jump Method 1.Clarify concepts 2.define problem 3.analyze problem 4.critique different explanations 5.define learning issues 6.self-directed study 7.meet and share learnings with group Scripted Cooperation –Summarizer & criticizer
CH 12: Do Surfing & Learning Mix? LEARNER CONTROL vs. PROGRAM CONTROL When learners have option to make choices on topic, pace and sequence of material When course/program offers few learner control; same topic, pace and linear sequence of material for all learners
3 Arenas of Control Option 1.Content Sequencing 2.Pacing 3.Access to Learning Support “Poor calibration of comprehension is the rule rather than the exception” - Glenberg et al Definition: The correlation between one’s confidence estimate and one’s actual performance is called calibration
Guidelines for best use of learner control to optimize learning 1.Use learner control for learners with high prior knowledge or high meta-cognitive skills 2.Make important instructional events the default navigation option 3.Add advisement to learner control (variation of adaptive control)
