Bambuser saved a bit of knowledge of CSCL

Collaborative work on a Friday in University of Oulu with the exchange students

These was the home work for today.

I read the article, which I didn´t understand deeply. Still I could follow the discuss and was participating in that scientific approach of the task by recording speech, when Eva was drawing our wisdom of CSCL. That means Computer Supported Collaborative Learning. We took a historical aspect to CSCL.

It is very good for the understanding to see thing drawn down. Teaching is for me back-to-basics with a pen or chalk and a chalkboard, which this time was an app Explain Everything. Luckily it was familiar to me since #MobileSummer2014 which was held by Hämeenlinnan Ammattikorkeakoulu,  Institute of Applied Sciences of Hämeenlinna.

I need time to cope with technical environments. I was also lucky, when a fellow student came to ask what was the app i was using to record our collaborative learning in a Box (a small room in the corridor). It was a swedish “uppfinning”, Bambuser.

This is my Bambuser where you can find five shots of our collaboration of SCSL.

P.S. Read my other blog, Rundgren´s CatLook at this too!

Face-to-face, Collaborative and Individual learning

From Oulu University´s sites I can read, that we on this course of learning technology 418019P we learn Face-to-face for 50 hours and collaborate and learn individually for 80 hours:

In this course the students familiarize themselves with the theoretical background, core concepts, and contemporary tools of educational technology. The course introduces the students to the field of learning sciences and examines the role of learning and educational technology in a globalized world. One central goal of this course is to learn to use and evaluate technologies in pedagogically meaningful way. In this course students start to reflect on their own learning and expertise in a digital portfolio. 


1.How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience and School: Expanded Edition. (2000). Washington, DC: The National Academic Press

2. And/or other contemporary readings in the field of learning and educational technology, to be announced at the beginning of the course.

It took me for two weeks to get involved with the studying of LET, Learning Enhanced Technology. First of all I had forgotten all the theories of education, learning and teaching. Now I remember the old conceptions like behaviorism, cognitivism, constructivism and transformative learning theory. I can add also multimedia in learning.

I started to read the book of How People Learn. My English got better very soon and I started to learn an expertise of my own. One of the young students had read the book already and formerly made notes of it for an assignment of collaborative learning.

I was at that moment out like a snowman. And many more hours learning together!
