E103 – Designing for Collaboration in Digital Information Environments
Monday, April 7, 2014
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM
Associate Professor, School of Communication & Information, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
This session presents key findings from a Rutgers Center for International Scholarship in School Libraries project that studied the research and writing processes of high school students engaged in group research tasks. It involved two classes of 9th grade English students engaged in a collaborative inquiry task. They worked in a wiki environment, negotiating the development of their research topics and working together to construct their products. Based on the findings, the session discusses lessons learned about designing collaborative digital learning spaces, strategies for developing and managing the group work in digital environments, and instructional strategies to support deep learning in groups.
