Abstract

The lens of appreciative inquiry, as seen through the eyes of educators, examines ten years of virtual learning at several institutions. The study reflects on the impact of presence, and explores how learning communities develop as students assume roles and learn using cognitive apprenticeship. The examples reinforce the value of deep immersion and identity in situated learning, even as the software design activities illustrate the benefits experienced when students assume ownership and structure their activities. Encouraged by self-reflection, the learners explore their shared values, form into groups, and make personal discoveries. The examples illustrate the power of design thinking during individual and group work. From early work with 400 8th graders through 50 higher education classes taught at two institutions, techniques emerged for applying cognitive apprenticeship and deep immersion that strengthened the experiences and provided insights for developing a sustainable educational program.
