Space for dialogue where students learn and grow
itsumo is an online space where students have peer-to peer dialogues with different partners over various questions they find as they study every day.
In order for learners to question and answer without worries, itsumo secures mutual anonymity and monitorability by the administrator, and encourages asking the same question more than once.*
Dialoging as a daily practice both as the inquirer and answerer not only promotes learning but also nurtures confidence of being helpful, awareness of interests and concerns held by others, and a sense of “walking along with many people”, in a gradual but steady manner.
As a mechanism to foster such processes, a “symbol” derived from an animal or plant accompanieseach learner in the journey.
