    25. 25. ActionE-mail to Head of Department on 11th May 2013Perhaps we could try a Google document forlisting the students’ experiences. I’m not sure ifyou already use Google docs or not. It offers anumber of affordances in the cloud such assharing with students, staff and perhaps outsideexperts, and a space for comments and feedbacknext to the text. One chooses who to offer accessto the document. It can facilitate a collaborativeapproach. It will also illuminate how the criticalfriend / partnership dialogue is happening thatI’ve recently introduced. I’m keen to try the latteraspect with the next student block.
    26. 26. Affordances“An affordance is the action potential of a technology”Siemens (2009:21)Examples of affordances of Googe Drive include:View-ability Use-abilityRecord-ability Inclusiv-abilityPermission-ability Search-abilityShare-ability App-abilitySynch-ability Mobil-abilityBower 2008:7
