Collaborative Learning!
What are the benefits of collaborative learning?

I'm disoriented and don't understand what is required of me in collaborative learning
Scenario 1
Our question!
How should learning activities be designed in order to motivate students for participation?
Community vs.
Community is more than just a network

Building a community involves
being connected (existing within a network)
identifying with each other as a group
building a community identity
finding internal forms of interaction

The Teacher - Structure
creator and facilitator of learning activities
knowledge of group processes
knowledge about how people learn
skills in designing the course according constructive alignment
digital literacy and technical support
The Teacher - Interaction
giving feedback and clear guidance
communicating expectations for students to students
use both group and individual assessment
"Social Network Analysis Visualization" by MartinGrandjean
When the teacher creates a learning environment that is structured and facilitates interaction, it will lead to a transparent process where students know what is expected and can focus on learning outcomes. This leads to a feeling of meaningfullness.
