  • 38. “I’m a one man army, like many of you. This projectwasn’t the result of the effort of a team of a dozenpeople over 6 months. It was me, a couple weeks, and alot of lost sleep. To do this, I committed to the idea that itwould be a pet project...Part of me feels that you have to be willing to take thoserisks though when you’re in web development. Playing itsafe means you’ll only ever be average.”Michael Fienen, Pittsburg State University

  • 41. “In literally seconds, the document began to fill out as peoplearrived to collaborate or observe. On many occasions, peoplewere booted out as the maximum number of editors had beenreached (a number that seems to be around 50 simultaneoususers). It was interesting to watch the information emerge. Aswell, I was fascinated to see others who focused on theformatting and readability of the document. Individuals decidedwhat they could contribute, and worked together for a commongoal.”Crowdsourcing SolutionsAlec Couros,
  • 42. “I set up a Google Doc that everyone in class can edit before I lecture or lead adiscussion on material they will refer to all semester. I fill in the major topicheadings in an outline format.When they all have it open on screen I tell them to collaboratively take notes aswe go over the material. I set them up with a goal - example: "you need tounderstand these terms well enough to use them correctly in class discussionsand written critique papers assigned throughout the term. If one persons notesdont help you enough, add your own underneath. We want a collection ofexplanations of these concepts that we can all refer back to later."Written critiques using the terms discussed were due last week and I have to saythese are the best first-time critiques Ive seen from a class ever.”Cheryl Colan,

  • 48. “Although the organisation I work for supported and paid me to develop a project using Second Life, we werent able to install the software on our organisations computers (not approved - it takes 10 months for software to be approved!) so we used USB sticks and software called mojopac to circumvent the system and we were able to do demos to teachers without the organisation ever knowing”

  • 55. risky business
  • 56. “In addition to this activity being fun, I also noticed thatthere was a lot of higher-order thinking going on.Students were having to synthesize passages, evaluatewhich scenes most accurately characterized theirpassage, narrow them down to 5 images, decide how tophysically portray those 5 essential scenes andultimately create them. One reason the students lovedthis activity was because it was challenging, but thekind of challenging that is so much fun you dont realizehow much work it actually is.”Curby Alexander,

  • 59. “Sometimes I wonder what visitors expect to find in this blog for First Certificate. I imagine them googling and landing here in search of learning, tips and practice. Just think. All of those students alone with a computer searching for exercises to improve their English. Just like you. Now, isnt it a pity we dont share our findings? This morning I woke up with world domination plans and thought it would be fantastic to pull the results of those searches and share them.” Claudia Cersa, Buenos Aires,
