This is a diary of my involvement in a project on collaborative learning in the psychology department at the University of South Africa. Most recent posts below and links to previous posts on the left.
I stuck a "blatherboard" (a scrolling open-comment thingy) by Zonkboard on this blog a while ago and at the same time asked MA students to start their own blogs (links are at the top left of this blog). They've been dutifully doing that, and will hopefully get into the habit. What I didn't expect was that there would be so much activity on the blatherboard - mainly the sorts of elusive, apparently nonsensical things that might actually say more than carefully censored prose such as this. I've been wondering if some of the students would like to put up their own blatherboards or alternatively if it would be possible to make the same blatherboard appear on everybody's blog. A shared blog, with everybody having posting rights, is also a possibility, of course. Or maybe I should give the students posting rights to this blog.

Just came across two interesting-looking articles on collaborative learning. Haven't checked them out yet, but here they are anyway for future reference:
