Known: Building a community learning platform collaboratively
Tuesday, November 15 2:45 PM-3:45 PM Location: Edison Ballroom
Abstract: Community is a paramount component of education, but fostering an engaged and beneficial online learning environment can be elusive and challenging. Both technology features and participant behaviors contribute to the success and effectiveness of online learning. Working with our partners in higher education and professional development, Known has embraced questions around learner participation and social sharing. How can we encourage students to comment and meaningfully engage in an online learning community? How do we ensure learners feel comfortable sharing all stages of their work for feedback and reflection? We’ve built Known to be an innovative platform for connecting, discovering, and sharing within an educational community. During this showcase we will demonstrate how we’re designing and developing Known collaboratively with students and instructors to meet their needs for a community platform centered around learning.
