  • Student Spaces
    • The idea is to design / create a space that provides students with a secure online space, like an online portfolio:
    • For their own web presence / site within my43 – students can customize the look, add web parts / tools, etc.
    • For class announcements
    • To organize their online contacts
    • To work on / upload / track / organize assignments (documents)
    • To create/use wikis to collaborate with other students, teachers
    • To blog securely, possibly with ability to have the blog accessible publicly to the Internet
    • To bring together (aggregate) into one place all other online learning the student may have out on the public Internet
    • To create online discussion boards and invite other students, teachers to participate
    • To create online surveys to gather input from other students, teachers
    • Where teachers, the principal, and eventually the student’s parents can go to and see / participate in the students learning activities
    • For teachers to evaluate and assess a student’s learning

    “technology is not just advancing gradually: it is accelerating”, The Lights in the Tunnel, Kindle location 227
    “If you make some very logical, and even conservative, assumptions about where technology is likely to lead in the coming years, much of the conventional wisdom about what the future will look like becomes unsupportable”, The Lights in the Tunnel, Kindle location 222
