Abstract

Despite the positive findings collaborative learning and peer assessment mentioned above, research on student teachers’ use of online support for collaborative learning and peer assessment (Sivan, 2000) is not widely published. I attempted to try out these ideas using an action research approach for the module, computer-supported learning environment (CSLE). This module was particularly suitable for trying out innovative practices as Hannafin and Gall (1990) suggested it was most appropriate to have student-centered activities when learning in a CSLE. Specifically, this study aimed to investigate if learners embraced collaborative learning and peer assessment by participating in various online and face-to-face activities in addition to attending formal lectures. The participants were Year 2 Bachelor of Education (Primary) preservice student teachers studying at the Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd). They took IT as one of their minor studies. Participants had taken three modules related to IT prior to taking this module, computer-supported learning environment, which I taught.
