What is Discussion Assignment?

The Discussion Assignment tool allows teachers to structure a meaningful online discussion and drive peer learning in the classroom.

Why is Discussion Assignment useful for learning?

Discussion Assignment allows teachers to replicate a physical classroom and leverage the interactions in an online environment. Online discussions can help to teach students discussion and writing skills. Organizing an open-ended discussion will also sharpen students’ thinking and argumentation. In Discussion Assignment, the flow of debate is organized in such a way that it also includes the learning benefits of peer review and self-reflection.

How does Discussion Assignment work?

Students are asked to participate in the online discussion and to review the input of peers. In a more open environment, students can comment and upvote on all input. Once there is enough activity, teachers participate and guide the discussion. A reflection moment is incorporated to increase a deeper understanding of students. Some of its features include:

  • Analytics on student participation
  • Filters and sorting options
  • Peer review of argumentations
  • Self-reflection
