Activity 2.10: Group Debate
In this activity, go to the designated
Discussion Forum to discuss, elaborate, and most of all, debate
the following position commonly held by cognitive information processing
"Knowledge cannot be instructed (transmitted) by a teacher, it can only
be constructed by the learner."
1) Identify you debate team:
2) Complete the online
poll to record your personal position on the above assumption.
3) As in the previous debate, tag your messages
by function. This time, please include team membership
following the tags with (S) = supporting team, and (O) = Opposing team.
For example: Enter "EVID(S) message title" to enter evidence in
support of the position, and "EVID(O) message title" to enter evidence
to support an argument in opposition to the position. For some reason,
cannot distinguish the + and - signs when using its search function.
With the search function, you can easily list all arguments,
evidence, and critiques posted by each team to help you assess team performance!
4) To receive full credit for this activity,
you must post a minimum of 4 messages and complete the online
you vote in the online poll to determine which team won the debate!
The results of the polls (before & after) will be posted by your instructor.
