I hope you enjoyed hacking the news. I fell a little behind this week and did not get to edit the raw video feed down.
Did anyone try the Hack the News activity?
Did anyone try the hack website credibility?
If so I would love feedback.
We are moving on to think alouds. We will have our hangout on Air and our Twitter chat (though I am usually only person there).
In this weeks make we will experiment with making bias think alouds. I am most excited about this and also the most anxious. I have to develop the videos and the think alouds.
This is really the first major iteration in the design experiment I need to play with. What video works best? Can the avatar just speak as it plays? Are inline rather than auto-play avatars better?
Are the avatars even needed? Previous research would suggest no. That is why you will just be learning how to use Snag-It for Chrome and Genius for bias think alouds.
I shoudl have tutorials up mid-week.

If you plan on using any or some of these activities with K-12 students let me know ASAP. I need to get final numbers and find out if you will have students operate in the open and share online or if students will be private.
If you want to assess your students using my measures I have to get permissions out to you.
