For this Discussion, your goal is to determine the best method for collaborative learning by analyzing these new, innovative CSCL tools.
Read Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: Instructional Approaches, Group Processes and Educational Designs with a focus on the four CSCL models for promoting a collaborative environment. I am promoting: Blending Face-to-Face and Online Collaboration
Read The Interpersonal Interaction in Computer Supported Collaborative Learning Environment, and reflect on the authors’ definition of CSCL, as a democratic mode of participation where everyone’s voice can be heard and is given equal standing.
Choose one of the four CSCL models to champion and advocate. Share what makes this the best model for collaborating with technology and the benefits it provides when compared with the other models. Explain how you would integrate this model into an eLearning environment so that all learners’ voices can be heard and be given equal standing. Defend your choice from personal experience, a learning theory, and at least one research study (PhD, EdD, and EdS students) or dissertation (PhD and EdD students); include course resources as applicable
