Hey CT BOR if you are going to talk about the accessibility requirements for online learning you should caption your videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ty6p_qa6ZRo&feature=youtu.be

Hey @scsu #edu106 here is your MidTerm

Reflection Drives Learning

2 min read

You need to create a spreadsheet or document to answer the following questions:

  • Did you post a reflection of your reading by tracing the shape of a TV show (2020-09-06)
  • Did you write a blog post on how shapes affect stories 2020-09-06
  • Did you complete a free choice blog post? 2020-09-06
  • Did you trace the shape of a popular communication tool like email? 2020-09-09
  • Did you take notes on "why we take a selfie?" 2020-09-21
  • Did you post an unselfie? 2020-09-21
  • Did you post your notes on School and Identity readings? 2020-09-28
  • Did your explore your identity as a learner 2020-09-30
  • Did you complete a free choice post? 2020-09-30
  • Did you complete 5 photo challenges? 2020-10-15
  • Did you build a website with a homepage and a second page with photos (part of your final)

You must include a working link to an artifact as Observable Evidence. If you need help linking to artifactsa in Microsoft Teams let me know or drop by Design Studio and we can hack on some solutions.

Then consider the module objectives:

  • Examine the selfie as an artifact of identity
  • Explore learner identities and the impact this has on learning.
  • Explore the impact learning and education have on identities.
  • Annotate a research article for descriptive statistics
  • Students will be able to use and create structured electronic documents.
  • Students will be able to use graphical and multimedia technologies.

Now considering the artifacts you submitted evaluate those against the objectives and then choose your grade.

If we agree that is your midterm. If we do not we will meet until we come upon a grade we agree upon.

How to Submit

You must write a paragraph or two explaining yoru grade choice and how it reflects the mastery of your objectives.

Then include a paragraph or two on what you learned about yourself as a learner and how we learn to learn online. Set some learning goals for the second half of the semster.

h/t and all the imaginary extra credit points you want for using our key vocabulary from the module in your writing:

Bell Curve, Kurtosis, Skewness, D(d)iscourses, remix, creative commons, text structure, narrative, semiotics

Looking for a an action packed day today.

-Early on I had some ideas for the working group that kept festering on my hike yesterday. So did some hacking on Working Group tasks before house woke up.

-Dropped kids off at school and checked the six online classes I teach this semester. Dropped in to share my love of Erik B and Rakim (this week doing best hiphop duos of 90s recommendations welcome)

-Then it will be a morning full of interviewing Southern Connecticut State University students seeking admission into our College of Education programs to become teachers.

-Will hop back into teacher mode and record some videos for where students are getting their roles assigned in our weekly discussions. Then over to show students how to use a wiki to add our book reviews.

-By lunch I transition to camp a free remote technology camp for middle schoolers. Camp starts at 15:00 so want to finalize lesson plans and hire a student worker to help with the work load.

(DM for donation materials all moneys go to getting free computers and training to families in New Haven)

-Then after dinner I have to rectify the books as treasurer for East Haddam Little League...little behind on the books.

I do feel for teachers... Running a synchronous hybrid classroom is hardest of all instructional design.

At same time web 30 years old. Fact this many teachers illiterate, unable to read and write online is a national disgrace.

@Ebonyteach In 10+ years of teaching online showing your face is about~50% Many opt out for so many reasons but these fall often on engendered and immigrantion status or FU I like my privacy. We need to respect it.

Greg McVerry

@wiobyrne & suggest about a critical stance (disposition more than discrete cognitive problem solving or Sourcing skills).

Best built by telling your own story online, remixing perspectives & hacking credibility markers

Morning WoD furtive: trying to avoid notice. "It is okay to lurk and learn" in online classes but she only made a few furtive appearances trying to hide in class. Sincere peers worked with their friend and made sure everyone could succeed

Greg McVerry

@sarahlouwou Let alone the training. We started a tech camp in New Haven and all campers got a free computer.. After six weeks of learning how they learn online.

Greg McVerry

So you have a bunch of employees who have little training in online teaching and you think schopols will be better without evaluating and coaching these employees....and no recording of live streams makes little pedagogical sense

Greg McVerry

wow we are gonna mess up the CT reopening @ceanews teacher want:
-no recording live streams for later use
-want free computers (for teachers)
-50 a month for internet
-no evaluation of online teaching
