Abstract: Teachers in many countries now have access to wirelessly connected devices, but need ways to use that infrastructure to enable rich collaborative learning. Group Scribbles provides a dynamic and flexible medium that is easy to learn and enables transformative participatory learning experiences. A familiar Post-It note metaphor allows most teachers and students to learn Group Scribbles quickly and to use it to enable simple brainstorming activities without much preparation. This workshop brings together users and researchers from around the world to demonstrate Group Scribbles and other collaborative learning tools, discuss challenges of assessment and improvisational instruction, and develop design principles for producing activities that enable agile learning and collaboration in real classrooms. Through engaging brainstorming and design sessions, the workshop itself will operate as an agile classroom as participants use Group Scribbles to receive, generate, edit and transmit their own script to determine the flow and aims of the workshop.

 

 
Workshop Format and Activities

This full-day workshop will bring together users and researchers from around the world to demonstrate Group Scribbles and other collaborative learning tools brought by participants, discuss challenges of assessment and improvisational instruction, and develop design principles for producing activities that enable agile learning and collaboration in real classrooms. The workshop will begin with a background talk on the agile classroom, followed by a demonstration of Group Scribbles. Group Scribbles will be the medium via which participants receive, generate, and edit information throughout the day in their brainstorming and design sessions. We will use Group Scribbles to present a candidate agenda for the remainder of the session. Participants will be invited to use the tool to edit this agenda­­–– renaming topics, changing their order, suggesting new topics, voting on topics, etc. Thus, the workshop itself will operate as an agile classroom wherein the participants get to edit their own script. The candidate agenda will include:

Invited Participants

This workshop is intended for designers of collaborative tools and pedagogies as well as the instructors who use them. Roughly 10-20 participants would be ideal. We will invite research partners who have direct experience using Group Scribbles in classroom settings, and also hope to attract new researchers to the Group Scribbles user community and share experiences with developers and users of comparable tools. Invited participants will include, but are not limited to, the following:
