Upping Your Game:  Beyond Basic Digital Tools

Effective Online Collaboration: Getting the Most Out of Online Discussion

Online discussion is a crucial skill to teach our students, whether it’s to prepare them for learning in college classes or modeling appropriate online collaboration techniques. While it is important for students to learn the logistics, online discussion can also be extremely impactful in your class; imagine these scenarios:

•You start class with your students already front-loaded with sharing their initial opinions about a topic so that you can have a more meaningful deeper conversation in class
•You know students’ reaction to a homework assignment before they get to class so you know where to start
•You have a digital archive for your students to reflect on how their learning has changed over time
•You have a way of helping students who are not assertive participate in a less threatening environment

These are only a FEW of the impacts that online discussion can have on your class! While not a replacement for the great face-to-face interactions that occur in your class, online discussion can break down the classroom walls and allow for the learning to expand and fulfil your learning objectives.

-Take-away digital toolkit- including resources such as rubrics and assessment guides, online tools and tutorials, and practical tips for monitoring student participation to ensure quality, high-level engagement
-Next week’s lesson- you will create your own online discussion in session to use asap, so your planning is already done for you!
