Research 3 online participation

Kerri Thompson

As founder of the New Zealand breakfast 'spark' chat #BFC630NZ I have contact every weekday morning with my PLN on Twitter. This was the perfect forum to initiate some discussion around the question for our literature review.

How can the design of the spaces in an ILE facilitate learner engagement?

The topic of Growth Mindset is one I am a real believer in. I have used this topic for learner inquiries over the past three years. I have seen the change in the way my students approach challenges, understand the learning pit, and know that making mistakes is part of the learning cycle. This post from Debbie in the Google+ Mindlab Community prompted me to contribute in response to her comment that she was 'thinking of using growth mindset to engage and motivate students to set next steps'.

Connected literacy is another passion of mine having initiated #NZreadaloud in 2015. When I saw Jordan's post in the Google+ Mindlab Community about Collaborative Reading Comprehension Strategies asking specifically 'has anyone had success with collaborative reading tasks' I was compelled to respond.

Powerful learning is something I am committed to providing for my learners. I have been on a journey of 'beautiful disruption' for the last four years. I have been doing this from my traditional single cell classroom. This post in the Google+ Mindlab Community from Joseph resonated with me as he ponders attaching 'in ILE's' to the end of his question. It made me wonder 'will learning be more powerful in an ILE when collaborating with another teacher'?
