Hi, I'm Helen, and I've been a lurker for a loooong time - well in Classroom 2.0 terms a long time!
But now I'd like to get your opinions for some research I'm doing into Gilly Salmon's 5-Stage Model and E-tivities framework.
Gilly Salmon's 5-stage model and e-tivities framework have been used successfully to support learning in a variety of contexts, courses, disciplines, types and levels of education from schools all over the world, to Masters courses, to continuing professional development.
On behalf of the University of Leicester Beyond Distance Research Alliance I would like to find out how these models have been applied in learning and teaching across the world in the last ten years. I know that teachers have used them in a variety of different ways, adapting and developing the models to suit their own purposes. As part of the background to a new book, I would like to find out about the models in practice. The general results of this research will be made available to all practitioners.
If you have used the 5-stage model or e-tivities in any way, even adapted, please respond either here, in the Classroom 2.0 forum, or, if you prefer to respond offlist (as it were), by taking our online survey:
OR you can contact me, Helen Whitehead at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd love to know what early innovators like yourselves think.
