AM in FM - The Animation Mentor community p2p learning using FlashMeeting
This event took place on Tuesday 23 May 2006 at 12:30

Understanding the pedagogy of peer learning is one of the most important knowledge frontiers in research on educational technologies and indeed in education generally. The FlashMeeting research project on innovative online events has provided a wealth of naturalistic data on groups working together.

In this talk I will present the initial results of an evaluation of one specific p2p learning community: 80-100 students who are studying independently in the US based Animation Mentor programme. The study explores the nature of their interchange, their work, their social relationships and their sense of community in this innovative environment.
