20211024T1115 20211024T1145 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh ONLINE APPLICATIONS FOR ENHANCING COLLABORATIVE LEARNING IN ENGLISH CLASSES

Collaborative learning provides students with numerous benefits because they should not just be taught facts and concepts as content, but more importantly the skills of acquiring, internalizing, applying and creating new knowledge (Ronen & Pasher, 2011). There is a significant number of tools and online applications that support collaborative learning, especially during challenging conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic. In this technology fair, the presenters will demonstrate the uses of tech-enhanced collaboration tools in classrooms such as Padlet, GoSoapBox, Popplet, and Mindmeister. With clear and simple demonstration of a number of suggested activities for enhancing students' collaborative learning, it is hoped that teachers can easily apply such tools in their teaching context. By incorporating these tools into teaching activities, English teachers will give students more opportunities to actively join in collaborative problem- solving tasks and increase their flexibility of the learning process in both small groups and big groups. Such online applications may also encourage students' reflections about their own learning and improve their critical thinking skills which are of crucial value for students' collaborative learning.
