CSCL 2015 in Gothenburg was great! I presented our work on “Materiality of online students’ peer-review activities in higher education”. PDF
Teresa Cerratto-Pargman, Ola Knutsson and Petter Karlström from Stockholm University.
Abstract: In spite of the widespread use of technology in higher education, discourses on learning technologies commonly account for their features as disembodied from their use. There has so far been few theoretical approaches which have delved into “the technology question” in CSCL. We present an empirical study that investigates how students’ peer-review activities are entangled with sociomaterial aspects of mediated collaborative learning. The students’ peer-review activities were analyzed according to the Collective Instrument-mediated Activity Situation (CIAS) model, and findings show that the materiality of two different tools had considerable influenced how students engaged with the texts and how they interacted with each other.
Our Workshop. And together with Isa Jahnke, we had fun organizing and conducting the workshop Changing Teaching and Learning Practices in Schools with Tablet-Mediated Collaborative Learning (#TMCL15): Nordic, European and International Views
Take a look at the great contributions we have discussed during the workshop!
