Shared Thinking points to new areas of research and practice for networked learning. This process developed at University of Glasgow utilises network-based technologies such as voting technologies and interactive whiteboards.
The generative dialogical process of Shared Thinking gives rise to a visualisation or representation of the whole group at a moment in time on a given topic. This creates a learning community approach that includes and involves everyone in whole-group enquiry within the face to face classroom.
Not only does Shared Thinking therefore represent a new approach to networked learning it extends and connects ideas of online learning into the classroom environment. In doing so it opens up new possibilities for learning teaching and research.
