Title: Ubiquitous Orchestration: Perspectives from the Pedagogical Space and Tools for the CSCL teacher
Abstract. Orchestration in the CSCL classroom entails the design, enactment and “run-time” adaptation of rich pedagogical scenarios which are expected to result in students’ enhanced learning. The concept of “ubiquitous orchestration” (orchestration over multiple dimensions such as spaces, tools, agents, social levels, etc.) advances our level of conceptual understanding regarding the multitude of interactions emerging in the CSCL classroom and also the complexity of technological solutions necessary for supporting CL activities extending over various interconnected spaces. I argue that teachers’ orchestration actions are eventually reflected on a “pedagogical space” where they become meaningful in the form of (more or less) viable CL activity patterns. Through this reflection process teachers can gradually develop their own orchestration pattern language while technology needs to be flexible and manageable enough to allow and encourage the interplay between abstract pedagogical level and the physical and technology-created spaces (web, 3D worlds, augmented reality, etc.). I exemplify this reflection process by presenting the “adaptation pattern” approach and explore the implications for technologies aiming to support orchestration across physical and technology-based spaces. Furthermore, I will review from the orchestration perspective some research efforts and tools developed lately by our team, such as: extending the IMS-LD capabilities to cater for adaptation, the MentorChat tool for orchestrating students’ dialogue through interventions of a conversational agent and exploring scripting-related issues such as “what happens in scripted collaboration when it is not scripted”.
