The #edu106 Final

2 min read

It is hard to believe we are already done. As I said in class there are three options for the finals:

My Portfolio

  • An About Me Page
  • Three of your favorite blog posts
  • A multimedia project from class

Use this approach to just show off what you build. On each page you may want to include a reflection about your projects

Ed-Tech Portfolio

  • An About Me Page
  • Three of your favorite blog posts
  • A Screencast to teach us something

This option is for any pre-service teacher.

Digital Essay/Project

  • An About Me Page
  • Three posts or activities about your subject
  • A video or multimedia project to teach us about your topic

This option is for those who are doing a social justice, personal learning project, or a digital essay

The Templates

There are two templates you can choose from for the final:

Template One

Template Two

The Common Themes

Connected Learning

First and foremost your project should describe your adventures into. When writing your introduction or reflecting on your makes think about the values and principles of connected learning

Video or Animation

We have been experimenting with making meaning using a variety of video tools. Each of these showcases asks you to highlight a production based remix of make. You can use something we made in class.

Good luck to everyone and do not hesitate to ask.

The UX of Parenting: My latest post for #edu106

1 min read

When I often struggle to think about what to write I turn to every day objects. This is a great tip for new writers. 

When you get "writer's block" you are not suffering from a deficit of ideas, but of strategies. Having a few tricks in your toolkit can help any writer no matter her experience.

In this post I took a few images from around the house. Really boring stuff. Like a toothbrush holder. The real work of meaning making lives in the metaphor. I used parenting and the design concept of user experience.

User experience is about how a system or tecjhnology makes someone feel. The User interace is the tool otself. So through reification I superimposed this paradigm onto parenting. What emerged is a allegory of sorts.
