Towards a New Learning: The "Scholar" Social Knowledge Workspace, in Theory and Practice
Cope, Bill; Kalantzis, Mary
E-Learning and Digital Media, v10 n4 p332-356 2013
This article describes the thinking behind the development of "Scholar," a "social knowledge" technology developed as part of a series of research and development projects at the University of Illinois. Seven pedagogical openings are identified in this article, possibilities for the creation of innovative learning environments afforded by a new generation of educational technologies: ubiquitous learning, active knowledge production, multimodal knowledge representations, recursive feedback, collaborative intelligence, metacognitive reflection and differentiated learning. The article explores these ideas in general terms, and also describes the ways in which the "Scholar" environment attempts to translate these ideas into practice.
