Affordances

In Uncategorized on June 17, 2009 at 8:23 am

Qiyun Wang suggests to use an interesting model to identify and compare the affordances of different ICT tools.
– Pedagogical affordances
– Social affordances
– Technological affordances

For example, Wang compares weblogs and discussion forum. He concludes that the weblog is a more personalised tool, as it gives the student blogger full control and ownership over the content published. It is more useful for individual reflections. The discussion forum is a shared space in which participants can exchange ideas. Students are participants rather than owners of the space. It is more likely to be useful for collaborative knowledge construction.

The challege for me now is to identify and compare the affordances of all the tools in Blackboard…
