Chapter 1: Digitally enhanced collaboration
Chapter 1 focuses on the benefits of digitally enhanced collaboration for the learning process in educational settings. Accordingly, collaboration techniques and digital tools enabling and supporting collaboration are presented and discussed.
Thus, Chapter 1 aims at supporting learners, particularly teachers, to identify benefits of digitally enhanced collaboration for the learning process including the promotion of learner engagement and accountability. Different digital tools are characterised and valued.
Online references to results of the EDUdig project and other open sources are also given.
Three reflective questions may serve as an attunement and as a motivator:
- What are the characteristics of digitally enhanced collaborative learning as compared to other forms of learning?
- What do I expect from introducing collaborative learning activities into my own courses?
- What do I need for the pedagogical transformation towards collaborative learning?
