Scaffolding student learning
2018/2019, Semester 1

Modular Credits: --
What is scaffolding? How does it help learning? Can technology be used? Does it work? Scaffolding can come in a variety of forms, from increasing engagement, providing alternate learning strategies, resolving learning bottlenecks, and (paradoxically) taking away support to allow students to master material, among other things.
This workshop will highlight technology that can provide appropriate scaffolding. We will look at technologies that can be used before, during and after class. In all applications of different problems, we will start with the question, “what is the problem?” Join us with your problems and let’s discuss whether scaffolding will help.
