CNIE Conference 2014

Note that I have been a member of CNIE for many years now – since it was first created (and a former member of both AMTEC and CADE – the two organizations that merged to form CNIE).  Their conference is coming up next month, and it will have a strong K-12 focus this year (see below).

Hi Michael,
Hope all is going well for you. I was just wondering if you could promote our CNIE (Canadian Network for Innovation in Education) Conference on your Virtual High School blog and anywhere else you can. We have many sessions of interest to K-12 teachers. I’m attaching a poster as well.
The (CNIE) conference being hosted by TRU May 14 to 16, with pre-conference workshops on May 13. This is a wonderful opportunity to participate in a national and international conference here in Kamloops.
A draft of the schedule is already posted on our website at http://www.tru.ca/distance/cnie.html Registration is through the CNIE and you need to set up an account to do so https://www.assocsrv.ca/cnie-rcie/login.asp?lang=e
We’ve also arranged for some great pre-conference workshops. You can find descriptions of them all here http://www.tru.ca/distance/cnie/program-and-agenda/pre-conference-workshops.html and can register here http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/cnie-pre-conference-workshops-tickets-10807648969?  To highlight a few:
  • Drawing on the Walls is a one-day visual facilitation workshop with Nancy White that opens up the possibilities for visual / graphic facilitation
  • Gamification with Katrin Becker
  • Video Camp and Sound Camp with the Innovations Lab
  • Geocaching
  • Online Mapping
  • Interculturalizing the Curriculum
Please let me know if you’d like more information.

Article Notice – Peer Learning In Virtual Schools

This came across my electronic desk over the weekend.

Peer Learning in Virtual Schools

Sam Catherine Johnston, Diana Greer, Sean Joseph Smith
Journal of Distance Education – Vol 28, No 1 (2014)

Abstract

This article is about peer-to-peer learning amongst students within K–12 virtual schools. This issue is examined through a case study of experiences of three students with disabilities enrolled in one virtual school and that of their parents, teachers, and school administrators. The article is framed around variability in learners’ aptitudes for peer-to-peer learning, in the design of the learning environment and what it affords for interpersonal interactions, and in the context where that learning design is implemented (and whether or not it promotes peer-to-peer learning). Each of these areas of variability impacted whether or not peer-to-peer learning occurred.

Keywords

K-12 virtual learning; peer-to-peer learning; special education
