Collaborative Learning for the Digital Age - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Hi... - 6 views

  • attention blindness
  • when we concentrate intensely on one task, causes us to miss just about everything else.
  • Attention blindness is the fundamental structuring principle of the brain, and I believe that it presents us with a tremendous opportunity.

  • Where they perceive the shortcomings of the individual, I sense an opportunity for collaboration.
  • I want to suggest a different way of seeing, one that's based on multitasking our attention—not by seeing it all alone but by distributing various parts of the task among others dedicated to the same end.
  • The 20th century taught us that completing one task before starting another one was the route to success.
  • When we gave a free iPod to every member of the entering first-year class, there were no conditions. We simply asked students to dream up learning applications for this cool little white device with the adorable earbuds, and we invited them to pitch their ideas to the faculty. If one of their professors decided to use iPods in a course, the professor, too, would receive a free Duke-branded iPod, and so would all the students in the class (whether they were first-years or not).
  • In the iPod experiment, we were crowdsourcing educational innovation for a digital age.
  • Collaboration by difference respects and rewards different forms and levels of expertise, perspective, culture, age, ability, and insight, treating difference not as a deficit but as a point of distinction.
  • Interconnection was the part the students grasped before any of us did. Students who had grown up connected digitally gravitated to ways that the iPod could be used for collective learning.
  • We used a method that I call "collaboration by difference." Collaboration by difference is an antidote to attention blindness.
  • When I had both samples in front of me, I discovered something curious. Their writing online, at least in their blogs, was incomparably better than in the traditional papers. In fact, given all the tripe one hears from pundits about how the Internet dumbs our kids down, I was shocked that elegant bloggers often turned out to be the clunkiest and most pretentious of research-paper writers. Term papers rolled in that were shot through with jargon, stilted diction, poor word choice, rambling thoughts, and even pretentious grammatical errors (such as the ungrammatical but proper-sounding use of "I" instead of "me" as an object of a preposition).
  • What if bad writing is a product of the form of writing required in college—the term paper—and not necessarily intrinsic to a student's natural writing style or thought process?
  • What if "research paper" is a category that invites, even requires, linguistic and syntactic gobbledygook?
  • Longitudinal studies of student writers conducted by Stanford University's Andrea Lunsford, a professor of English, assessed student writing at Stanford year after year. Lunsford surprised everyone with her findings that students were becoming more literate, rhetorically dexterous, and fluent—not less, as many feared. The Internet, she discovered, had allowed them to develop their writing.
  • The post, "How to Crowdsource Grading," proposed a form of assessment that I planned to use the next time I taught "This Is Your Brain on the Internet."
