Please leave a comment to this post related to the food and drink you’ll contribute to the final class.
Hard to believe, but it is time to share the final assignment for the semester. This is a two part assignment … the first is to be completed on an individual basis while the second will be completed in your teams. This week we’ll give you over half the class to work with your teams, so come prepared with any questions you may have. Also, it is important that you get close to completing the first part prior to class Thursday.
The rest of the Wenger book has been posted to ANGEL. Please read 173 – 221 for next week. That rounds out Part II on Identity. That also means that we should take up identity next week in a pretty serious way and also that you should focus your blog posts on that same concept. The last section is on Design. Feel free to dig into it if you have reading time, but you will need to finish up the rest of the book in the next couple weeks either way. Have a good weekend and I will see you on Thursday.

- What do you see as the higher education translation into k-12?
- You’ve all been to traditional conferences, did the back channel conversations (powered by social media) change the experience? What are some takeaways as it relates to your own future learning environments?
- Characterize your identity and relationship to the other TLT participants
- Did you get a sense that there was a clear TLT community based on your interactions with the people there? What sort of evidence can you state as to whether it is a community?
Made you look. Actually, thanks to bburns you will not have readings this week. Please post on your experience at TLT symposium this weekend (or whatever alternative activity you were involved in). Obviously, you should try and connect to the three themes (identity, community, and design if you forgot). Next week I will post another section of the Wenger book along with an interesting article about the Web 2.0 mindset and its impact on education/learning. Hopefully you all enjoyed and learned from your TLT experience and will insights to share. See you on Thursday.

Hi all … Bart Pursel from the College of Information Sciences and Technology will be in class on Thursday to talk to you a bit about virtual worlds and how they play out in a learning landscape. Bart maintains a blog that you might want to take a look at it. He also passed a link along to a PDF he’d like you to skim over. It should be a fun and interesting discussion, so please try to come ready to participate.
