Student Structured Conferences Chapter 17 Amelia Villanueva
No other Mind tool facilitates constructive, social learning better than asynchronous discussion boards because they support reflection on what one knows and through communication comes conceptual change. David Jonassen Student Structured Conferences Discussion Boards
Synchronous tools enable real-time communication and collaboration in a "same time-different place" mode. These tools allow people to connect at a single point in time, at the same time. Synchronous Web Conferences Chat White Boarding Instant Messaging Video or Audio Conference Application Sharing
Asynchronous tools enable communication/ collaboration over a period of time through a " different time-different place " mode. These tools allow people to connect together at each person's own convenience and own schedule.

Structured Student Conferences are changing the face of education as we have come to know it. Both asynchronous and synchronous conferencing are effective MindTools. As Jonassen notes, they “ engage learners in evaluating information, discussing options, problems solving, and justifying their decisions – all of which require critical thinking.”
