A Proposed Model to Increase Creativity, Collaboration and Accountability in the Online Classroom

Joy Kutaka-Kennedy

Abstract—As technological advances have revolutionized almost every aspect of our daily lives, the field of education has been evolving to optimally address the opportunities and challenges afforded by these new technologies. Like everything else, education has migrated online; however, some problems need to be addressed, such as the high drop rates for online courses, student disengagement, and course quality. Furthermore, developing the 21st century skills of critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity requires that we develop a pedagogy that goes beyond traditional lecture and information transfer models of the past. This paper will describe a few of the problems and possible solutions to online learning and 21st century skills through the use of collaboration and creativity. Accountability for collaborative and creative work will also be addressed.

Index Terms—Accountability, collaboration, creativity, online pedagogy.
