How got to current position. What you do now.
SH- 1 st year only, used Wikis, and Facebook. Librarian helped with technology because Chris wasn’t here yet.
SH – Studied education around the world
SH – How I found NAIS project, Education for all Wiki page
SH- Positive- able to collaborate over distance, make experience authentic with an authentic audience. Concerns of Quality and rigor of work were brought up, but you can mantain both of these and introduce problem solving along with analysis and synthesis. Negative- Time- it is a lot of work, this didn’t happen over the weekend. Time restraints. Last year class was 8:15 here which meant 7:45 pm. Workable. This year class is at 12:45 so Skype isn’t a reality, but YouTube works. 2. Make sure you get all students on board. All seniors can be a challenge.
