Day 4: Communities and collaboration

Today I chose ‘Making’

CollaborationOr find the comic online.

I signed up for Pixton some time ago but have never used it, amazed I could remember the password! The reflections are based on personal experiences as a tutor and student but also on some of today’s reading. The cartoon does not tell a story but is more a serious of ideas as they came to me.

There is a raft of considerations to be made when encouraging collaborative learning. Design of the activity, whether it is assessed or not but also the importance of a facilitator, who will often be the tutor. It’s great to let student’s create their own journey but what happens if they are heading straight for a bog, or they might need help to go around the mountain rather than over it – I can see the them for another cartoon coming.
