Abstract

“we-Learning” as the conference theme, is a social design challenge for those working with new learning environments. As we are presented with new tools, it is difficult to avoid the opportunities they support: we can share and collaborate without the monolithic requirements of a content/ learning management system, we can mutually support each other as learners in MOOCs through access to common resources and high quality presentations, and there are ways of co-authoring collaborative documents that keep the record of what is added and in what sequence. As we branch out from a single learner in an isolated world it becomes critical that we can track the learning path of each learner and with whom they interact to develop an understanding of the world. This presentation will explore new digitally supported learning and evaluation strategies with examples from school and higher education projects.
