Scripted Cooperation and Knowledge Maps: Information Processing Tools Applied to Deaf Education.
O'Donnell, Angela; Adenwalla, Dinaz
This paper presents a detailed description of two information-processing tools, scripted cooperation and the use of knowledge mapping, and their potential application to deaf education. Scripted cooperation is a method for structuring the cooperative learning activities of student pairs. The roles and activities of the participants are scripted. The cognitive, affective, metacognitive, and social activities of an interacting dyad can be directed by the use of an appropriate script. Knowledge mapping involves the presentation of information via two-dimension node-link representations. Central ideas are contained in nodes and are hooked to other ideas using a series of named "links" or relationships. The labeled links allow for the specific articulation of ideas and their connections and also provide students with retrieval cues. The efficacy of scripted cooperation and knowledge maps are assessed within the context of an undergraduate biology course. The role of knowledge maps in learning high school social studies material is also examined. (Author/DB)
