Implementing Productive Technology-mediated Discussions: Tech Tools & Research-based Strategies

Feedback form is now closed.
This session is an introduction to designing, setting up, and implementing productive technology-mediated discussions. This requires using appropriate technology tools and research-based theory and pedagogy.

The use of technologies to promote discussion is growing in popularity and importance at both K12 and secondary levels. Some technology tools are used synchronously in the classroom during regular instructional time. Other technology tools are used asynchronously to foster conversations outside of class time. Various blended, flipped, and fully online teaching formats often depend on effective technology-mediated discussions to enhance student learning.

However, structuring these discussion activities in a way that leads to beneficial discussions can be challenging. It is easy for discussions to devolve into students participating at the bare minimum level and posting superficial content that isn’t helpful. This session will share research-based theories and design strategies for engaging students and providing differentiated options to address different ability levels and interests.
