We all had a good meeting at Ted’s the other day. We decided we’d start this blog as a place to update the group on our progress over the summer and solicit feedback. In addition, we discussed technology (Camtasia, camcorder, Voicethread?), budget (I think we each have $500 to spend on materials and tech?), and the need to defend our choices of activities for Face to Face and online. A bunch of us will be using the Understanding by Design framework, and I shared some resources for learning about that.
Part of my summer work will be taking two online classes, and thus experiencing what works and what doesn’t first hand. So far, I have participated in online discussions and live-streaming lectures.
Have a great and productive summer everyone!
