The 12th International Conference on Computer-supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from June 18-22, 2017.
Dr Teo Chew Lee, a Senior Research Scientist at NIE who leads the KB community and KB work in Singapore, was the keynote speaker at this conference. In her talk, she traced the growth of four dimensions of an 8-year KB project in Singapore classrooms: (i) growth in number and connectedness of teachers in practice; (ii) growth in the dimensions of teaching and learning involved in the innovation; (iii) growth in ownership of practice; (iv) growth in research considerations; (v) growth in the role of the researcher.
