When the Internet gets a virus, does it see a GoogleDoc?
And we still work on. . .The most important thing you learned last class was the value of the work around. I'd like to say that I meant to to that, but then I might lose the remaining thread of credibility that I still have ;-)
Tonight we are going to grade each other's PowerPoint presentations in groups of 3. I would like you to stay in like grade levels, but not in the same groups that made the rubrics. . .Each person will need to have at least 2 peers evaluate his/her presentation. You will then submit to me the two rubrics from the peers who graded you (you will not submit your own rubric). If there were any mistakes on your PowerPoint, please fix and show your peers so that you can turn in a rubric that gives you full credit. . .
What else. . .TaskStream, Inspiration, Web 2.0, and Spreadsheets. . .
Journal 4 or 5(depending on your participation in the Summer Institute): Yes, there are more journals. . . I would like you to pick a technology from the Classroom 2.0 website (see link in the links area), choose a link from the tools list on the right hand column for a technology that interests you, and follow a discussion or two (or three. . .) that relates to your technology. If there are no discussions for your technology, choose another topic.
In the title bar, put journal number follwed by the technology you have chosen. (For example: Journal 5: Microblogging). In the journal, I would like you to define the technology and then report out on what you learned from the tool discussion and read and comment on at least three peers who have chosen a different tool. You reporting out should contain the 200-250 word minumum, but you do not need to ask and answer questions. In the assignments section, you will submit your peers names.
Tonight's Question: Do you think a competency model of education, one where students are allowed to fix errors and resubmit, punishes the "A" students? Would it be okay for everyone in your class to earn an "A"? Explain.
