"Flying Without a Net"

922

Published on

A presentation on using free, available, and powerful online tools to move curriculum towards a more authentic, student-centered reality. The title: "Flying Without a Net" was certainly not chosen by me. Therefore, I took every opportunity to poke fun at the notion...

I hope this collection of things makes sense in some way on its own (of you are seeing this for the first time here).

  30. 30. Tori Scott This is my class website! I’ve always loved science, but this year was a whole new experience for me. In our class Mr. Nash gives us multiple ways too look at science. There are so many new things to learn that it’s truly fun to experience it in different ways. I came into this class thinking it was going to be him lecturing and us taking notes. This year was the first year for me that it’s all been so hands on. This class really makes us think. Mr. Nash will just give us something, for instances a visual, and ask us to write about it. Like what we think it represents and our thoughts and opinions on it. I really enjoy doing this. It allows us as students to share what were thinking. That’s one of my favorite things about the website. Were able discuss and blog about the things we do in class. We each get to share as individuals, which is pretty amazing because each one of us think differently. This also allows us to learn on a completely different level. I’d have to say that if there is one thing i’ve learned this year would be that science is not black and white. Thats a big misconception i’ve had. Through the year though i’ve began to learn and realize that there is always a gray area. The site gives us the opportunity to talk about it and understand more. Tori Scott :) Thursday, June 4, 2009
  31. 31. Rachel Huntsman I am a student in the dual-credit biology class that uses the blog you have been discussing. I just wanted to let you know my thoughts on our use of the network. I really think it is a beneficial way of learning, and would recommend it to any teacher in order to get their students to actually think about learning. I will admit I was one of the students who took the class just to get this major required science class out of the way before college. However, this coming from a person who really doesn’t enjoy science at all, I have found that I enjoy this class. I feel like I can analyze what I learn and discuss things with other students rather than simply fill out a work sheet and answer test questions. I honestly think I will retain things from taking this class, and I can say I have benefited a great deal from it. I also like the idea that other people, such as yourselves, are actually reading this blog and looking at what we are learning and how we are learning. It makes me think about what I will post because I know someone from the other side of the world might read it. Thursday, June 4, 2009
