Duration: 20 minutes
A Technology Competency Challenge was created for an online business course to create and grow an online community of inquiry where people question, reason, connect, deliberate, challenge, and develop problem-solving techniques to help the disadvantaged become more technologically literate and competent, and better-equipped for the 21st Century.
This authentic online learning course includes a Challenge for teams of community college students to work together to create and build an online community and become more technologically aware and competent.
The eight-week challenge mirrors the 21st-century workplace where students work in collaborative teams and use technology to tackle real-world technology issues. The challenge begins with the big idea of providing online community service followed by the essential question: how do you create an online community of inquiry to help master technology?
