Tech-IQ: Technology Mediated Interdisciplinary Questioning
2007 (English)Report (Other academic)
The educational challenge of Tech IQ is to assist students in developing an integrated understanding of interdisciplinary, project-based teamwork through active participation in inquiry. To do this, the team will create an innovative computer-mediated and question-driven learning experience. Architecture, engineering, and management students engaged in project-based learning typically apply their knowledge in discipline-centric inquiry, and lack the opportunity to develop general interdisciplinary inquiry abilities in a real-world project context. The research team will design, implement, test, deploy, and assess the Tech-IQ learning interaction experiences as a pedagogic method based on a framework of six degrees of question exploration in support of effective interdisciplinary questioning in PBL. The team will use an information and communication environment that leverages two of the most pervasive cognitive technologies, i.e., speech and sketching. Using these tools will assist learners to articulate and represent their thinking and questioning and make their level of understanding more visible, tangible, clearer, sharable, and re-usable. These tools will be deployed in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction Management Global Teamwork course offered during 2006-07 at Stanford in collaboration with KTH in Stockholm, Chalmers University and IT University in Göteborg.
