Week 4 - Diiging and Flick-r-ing (Sp2012)

Page history last edited by Linda Newell 8 years, 9 months ago

 Introduction

This week we will continue to explore out-of-the-box thinking regarding engaging presentations for the classroom. Again, you will continue to add to the conversation on this much debated topic. "Sharing and caring" is the theme of the tools for this week and ones you will find useful not only in your professional but in your personal life as well.

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Continue an understanding of how to create more engaging presentations.

  • Continue adding to the conversation on the Web

  • Finding ways to keep up with new things on the Web and establish a network while doing it

  • Learn how share photos (also relates to Creative Commons)  and comment on them

 

Reading

  • Module 4
  • They Snooze,You Lose by Burmark, chapters 3-4 

 

Seminar     

  • Option 1 - You will attend a seminar that will discuss assignments for the upcoming week. We will also discuss the responses to last week's case study. Access to Meeting of the Minds is via the collaborate tool in Blackboard.

 

  • Option 2 – This option is to provide flexibility in meeting the scheduled portion of the course. If selected, your assignment is to listen to the archived seminar and then write a 350+ word synopsis, including your own responses, to each of the questions posed during the meeting. All APA formatting and citations conventions are to be followed (see syllabus).

 

          Because of the time sensitive nature of the information given during our seminar

          time, this assignment is to be received no later than the Thursday following the

          seminar meeting date. The synopsis is to be emailed to your instructor and

          timestamped by midnight. Papers received after Thursday will be accepted until the

          Sunday of the course closing for this week with a 20% deduction. After midnight,

          papers will no longer be accepted.
