Models for Building Knowledge in a Technology-Rich Setting: Teacher Education
MacKinnon, Gregory R.; Aylward, M. Lynn
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v35 n1 Win 2009
Technology offers promising opportunities for creating new types of classroom learning environments. This paper describes three technology models used by teacher education interns: electronic portfolios, negotiative concept mapping, cognote-supported electronic discussions. As implemented in the current study, these models invoke graduated attributes of knowledge building and as such serve as a useful continuum of examples of the potential of technology to assist in promoting progressive knowledge construction. A description of the models is followed by a discussion of the relationship of these classrooms to Knowledge-Building principles. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
