The first teacher meeting took place at Saxion Deventer. In the teacher meetings we reflect on and discuss the progress of the project. In addition, attending teachers will co-design the learning materials and environments with us. In this first teacher meeting, aside from introducing the project and the aim of the teacher meetings, we discussed the goals of the project and reviewed one of our cognitive tools, the concept mapper.
We are currently collecting the logfiles and preparing the analysis of the student conversations.
First experiment: We are collecting data at the four schools that are our projectpartners. Our goal is to investigate the effects of direct instruction and active reflection through peer-feedback on collaboration skills as shown in a digital learning environment. Students of the first year of vocational technical education work for five consecutive lessons in a computer supported collaborative learning environment that is designed to teach them about electrical currents and transport of electrical energy.
