International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (12th, Maynooth, Greater Dublin, Ireland, Oct 24-26, 2015)
We study tactics for writing skills development through cross-disciplinary learning in online large-scale classes, and particularly are interested in implementation of online collaborative activities such as peer reviewing of writing. The goal of our study is to carry out collaborative works efficiently via online effectively in large-scale classes with more than one hundred students. In this short paper we describe our recent progress of a survey of relevance between a peer reviewing activity and students' characteristics with the perception obtained from investigation of earlier studies regarding the grouping method. We conduct questionnaire surveys regarding the learning style, students' characteristics and adaptability of peer activities, and recognize the perception can adapt to most of students we supposed. Also from the perception if we employ an online collaborative activity in the large-scale classes by using our supporting tool, we consider that it is better to group students arbitrary under a certain condition. We propose a grouping method in which a student pairs with peers who submit his/hers assessment report around the same time as the student hand in own report. We think the grouping may powerfully act the group formation in large-scale classes we supposed, because the grouping need not to demand any additional task for instructors such as preliminary survey of students' characteristics or learning styles widely used in any collaborative learning.
