Collaborative Learning & Piazza

Last week in my technology and education class, one of the instructors introduced us to a site where anyone with a .edu email address can create an interactive learning space where the students can connect and ask and answer questions. Piazza allows the instructor to monitor the activity, and correct any misconceptions.  I have the ability to add my imprimatur of approval on student replies to questions.  This “central clearing house” for questions will allow me to respond to questions that an individual may have and make the answer visible to all.  This technology should help facilitate student learning by allowing them to teach one another.  I made the website available to the class last weekend, and the jury is still out.  They are scheduled to take an exam tomorrow, so the true test of student adoption will come tonite.
