The case for gated submissions

Twice out of three recent opportunities, I’ve been thwarted from my intentions by platform capabilities. And, once, I was supported. But this capability is so basic and so valuable, I thought I’d make the argument. So here I’m making the case for gated submissions.

First, what are gated submissions? It’s pretty simple: learners post their response to a question, and can’t see others’ responses until they submit their own. A valuable extension is for them to then be able to comment on others’ submissions. Technically, it’s simple. Pedagogically, it’s powerful.

Why is this so valuable? Well, it starts from social cognitive processing. When you have to create a response, you have to apply knowledge. And that’s a necessary part of learning. The assignment matters, of course, so it’s about applying the knowledge in a way you’ll need to do afterwards, or reflecting. It’s useful additional processing.
