In a classroom is it often difficult to get students involved in the discussion, both with peers and with the teacher. This also means that there are students that seldom are enabled to raise
their voice, discuss, or enhance their analytical and social skills in an academic environment. There have been and are many initiatives in order to overcome this challenge.
Educational technology and collaborative work are amongst these and both have proven to be effective. Educational technology has the advantages of involving students, raising
engagement and motivation, enhancing peer learning, and ensuring easy diagnosis for the student groups when used correctly. It also provides the lecturer with possibilities of
facilitating the usage of EdTech, giving immediate feedback to the group and it should be easy to integrate in existing lectures. Collaborative work has the advantages of enhancing
social skills, redirecting educational and social strategic goals for the students, as well as enhancing the learning environment.
iLikeIT2 wants to combine all these advantages and develop an online application with appropriate methodological guidelines to enable lecturers to easily and in a time-efficient way
connect students in a randomized group, and receive responses from all participating students. The students will be able to discuss the task provided by the teacher with peers and try
to agree upon a solution. This answer will in turn be submitted and object for plenary discussions facilitated by the teacher. iLikeIt2 will be a variation to the traditional group work,
where anonymity and written language will be focused on more than physical contact and verbal expressions.
