Applying foraging theory to on-line education design: The case of multitasking
About this session:
This presentation will describe principles of information foraging theory and how they can be utilized to design on-line classroom environments that manage student multitasking habits. The seminar will engage participants in two ways. First, participants will be invited to experience the multitasking environment resembling the one I designed in Spring 2020 by participating/responding to assignments offered to them via ZOOM chat, browsing, and utilizing ZOOM reaction functions. Second, towards the end of the seminar participants will be assigned to breakout rooms to design multitasking settings of their own which will be followed by presenting their group projects in the main meeting room. Q&A breaks will be offered throughout the session.
