Principles and enactment of rapid collaborative knowledge building in classrooms
Issue Date: 
Looi, C. K., Chen, W., & Patton, C. M. (2010). Principles and enactment of rapid collaborative knowledge building in classrooms. Educational Technology, 50(5), 26-32.
The authors discuss the notion of Rapid Collaborative
Knowledge Building (RCKB) in classroom settings.
RCKB seeks to harness the collective intelligence of
groups to learn faster, envision new possibilities, and to
reveal latent knowledge in a dynamic live setting. It is
characterized by the notion of rapid cycles of knowledge
building activities in a face-to-face setting. The authors
propose nine principles for the design of collaborative
learning activities in the classroom that foster
RCKB, five of which are adapted from Scardamalia's
knowledge building principles (Scardamalia, 2002). The
context of their work is design research on introducing
RCKB in a classroom with the use of a network technology
called GroupScribbles. The technology enables
collaborative generation, collection, and aggregation
of ideas, and empowers teachers to design new collaborative
and group learning activities in a classroom
setting. The authors present two actual classroom lessons
with collaboration activities which demonstrate some of
the design principles at play.
