  19. Like improvisation, discussion is a 2 way street… In the great words of Tina Fey…

  20. So, what did we learn? • Respect what your peers have created. • “Yes, and”…add something of your own. • Don’t be afraid to contribute. • Make statements. • Problem solve and be part of the solution. • There are no mistakes, only opportunities.

  21. Why is it important to say something substantial? • Substantive postings: • Drive conversations forward. • Require students to really think. • Reinforce understanding of the topic. • Keep quality of discussions high. • Produce more meaningful interactions.

  22. Round Table Discussion #3 How would you define a “substantive” response? Why is it important for students to participate in a substantive way? Brainstorm strategies that students can use to ensure their postings are substantive. TodaysMeet.com/Tucker

  23. Strategies for Saying Something Substantial Present a new question to refine or redirect Share a personal experience Think outside the box/play devil’s advocate Ask for clarification Make connections Share a resource Summarize main ideas Comment thoughtfully

  24. Intriguing Exit Strategies Teach students how to end responses and replies to invite further discussion.

  25. Ask for clarification or further explanation. • “I am confused about ______________. Does anyone have any ideas or insights that might help me understand?” Intriguing Exit Strategies

  26. Invite your peers to draw a different conclusion or share another perspective. • “Did anyone else reach a different conclusion based on the reading?” Example Exit Strategies

  27. Example Exit Strategies • Pose a follow-up question to expand the conversation or shift it in a new direction. • “This topic was not presented in the question, but does anyone have an opinion about __________________?”

  29. Round Table Discussion #2 What types of questions do you typically ask? What strategies do you use when designing questions? How often will you use your online discussions? TodaysMeet.com/Tucker

  30. Does Reading Cure Racism? Do you agree with Angelou’s statement that the only way we as a society will be free of the “blight of ignorance” is if we read and learn? Do you agree that reading, knowledge and education are essential to respecting differences and forming cross racial friendships? What experiences in your life have caused you to be open-minded? Design different types of questions What does a strong question look like? Start with a catchy title Layer questions Incorporate multimedia

  31. Embedding Instructions in Your Questions Signals that participation is required after they answer the question. Establishes a requirement for the number of replies. Once you have posted your response, read the responses posted by your peers and reply thoughtfully to at least 2 other students. Compliment strong points, ask questions and build on ideas shared! Provides clear strategies for adding substantively.

  32. Design Your Own Discussion Question • Go to our Collaborize site. • Click “Start a Discussion.” • Design a question: • Catchy title • Layered questions • Media • Expectations for participation

  33. Defining Your Role • Questions to consider: • What age level are you teaching? • How many students are you working with? • What is the goal of your online discussions? • Where will students participate online? • How much support do your students need?
