Practical and straightforward examples-- links were pretty useful as well.
This was thought-provoking and useful. Now I'd like to go further and see how to actually use some of the IT tools mentioned.
The video is well made and encourages ideas, but the assessment is quite vaguely termed, and without a facilitator to bounce ideas off, it's very difficult to get the 'right' answer. I did this with three colleagues and we all suggested a different answer.
For me a bit too simple. I would like to see more practical examples of learner collaboration rather than just thoughts or ideas.
Has some good ideas that I could adopt for my learners with SEN but would need to be handled carefully.
Ideal for lecturers as it can allow for exchanges of learning content and also students can get involved as well.
Good food for thought on how sharing work can provide extra dimensions to the classroom experience.
Interesting ideas. I would want to check on "ownership" issues before I shared resources, though.
This ended up as the first section I completed due to the need to click through areas that I had downloaded and read on previous sections. unclear on the process to complete and gain the badge. Well laid out but basic knowledge is required to complete the section.
very useful and some new ideas to use such as facebook live / skype etc
Same format as before, great video but doesn't fit on my screen correctly...responsive??
Nice to see a link to what 'Yammer' is. Heard a lot about it in the workplace recently.
This module provided some useful and simple ideas of ways to get your students to collaborate
