I learned today that a group of students used a Google doc to take lecture notes-- they all took notes simultaneously in a collective file.
As they took notes, they would mark places they were confused or couldn't follow the lecture--other students would see & explain, real time
I dunno where they learned this, or if they just came up with it together, but it is AMAZING. Truly brilliant collaboration & solidarity.
Part of me wants to incorporate this activity intentionally-- I wonder how it would work. Would they be less inclined if it was mandated?
Have any of y'all profs tried this or seen this play out? @icpetrie is this a thing that they are taught, or what?
they surely used it in this way- I know they were in part having each others' backs for when someone was absent or bored(?)
If only such a thing existed way back in the day I was minoring in history. It was so easy to miss stuff in those lectures.
