Electronic Workspace "Knowledge Forum"

Knowledge Forum is an electronic group workspace designed to support the process of knowledge building,

transforming ideas into community knowledge. Students learn about challenges their community faces within

the context of the subject matter being taught. These issues range from climate change to improving
services

to a community's residents through technology and open government. When students research issues with

those faced by their partners in other communities, local issues become global.



The Knowledge Forum platform accommodations any number of individuals and groups, where they can
share

information, launch collaborative investigations, create multi-media presentations, and build networks of

new ideas…together. The platform can be accessed through the Internet or through a local server, and is

available in multiple languages.

Regularly-Scheduled Videoconferencing
Connecting students through videoconferencing is fun and exciting. By sharing information about their own

community, personal interests and culture, students form strong bonds. Get a student in front of a webcam

and watch them shine! VIA is a product of e-Solutions, a closed videoconferencing system that assures

secured privacy. It was designed to facilitate remote communications with an interactive and synchronous

online presence for communication and presentation purposes. Our VIA private room allows us to control

the tools and functionalities of the site, such as the white board, upload/download files and videocamera

feeds. Invitations to participate are issued via email, and the sessions can be recorded and accessed for

asynchronous learning.
Educator Community of Practice
Where teachers, principals, tech staff and other faculty can network with their peers, gain access to

resources, mentor and be mentored, and partner their students with others around the world.
