MirandaNet Fellowship Casestudy
Evaluating e-learning experiences of primary age students using online discussion forum.
Year of posting: 2005
This small scale study uses a dialogical framework for social modes of thinking and ICT-based concept mapping to evaluate critical learning by 10-11 year old students of global citizenship through an online discussion environment. Evaluation methods use content analysis of the online discussion through the dialogical framework for social modes of thinking to measure social reasoning; keyword identification and concept mapping connectivity to measure conceptual transfer from the online discussion to individual students and higher order thinking; analysis of intentions, attitudes and perceived behavioural control to evaluate student attitudes to learning using an online discussion environment. In the case study it was established that critical learning and key skills development had taken place to a significant degree.
