Collaborative Questioning: A Case of Short Message Services (SMS) for Knowledge Sharing
Whenever a class is invited to ask questions, it is individual learners who ask and their questions do not often represent the questions of the whole class. The benefit to those present during the questioning session is usually by osmosis. It could be disruptive for several students to interject a question because they want to add to a question asked just before a teacher responds. This paper argues that collaborative questioning, which is a form of group interjection in a question is a useful learning tool. It exploits the ubiquitous SMS texting coupled with the power of the web to create an anonymous collaborative questioning environment. The paper reports on the case study in which students interrogate an academic text and collaboratively ask questions using SMS.
