Sharing Exemplars and Best Practices
In order for Sakai to mature as a set of tools and a framework to support teaching and learning, there are a number of things that need to be explored:
If we actually compare Blackboard with Sakai (not on the level of functionality) it might be summarized as Blackboard having a metaphor of traditional instruction (the page turning model of e-learning), whereas Sakai is about collaboration. Students can work together on meaningful, real-life assignments. It comes to experiential learning from rich learning tasks. The learning model is based on cooperative en collaborative construction of knowledge. Components such as Wiki and Blogs fit very well within a learning concept in which everyone is engaged and encouraged to participate (Stanley Portier).
This worksite will be used to explore issues related to providing support for good pedagogy in Sakai. The following projects and areas of exploration are part of this discussion:
