  26. 26. For the Next 2 WeeksBen investigated my learning network by reading articles,watching videos and engaging in lively online debate…
  27. 27. Jill! Can Hey Ben! you see me ok?Yes. I can… The more I learn about this, the more excited I am about the course. 4
  28. 28. I’m notsurprised abit... Tell mewhat youthink someof ourchallengeswill be. Well. Can you tell me a bit Purrrrr… more about how we might fit into the interactions. 4
  29. 29. We will use 3 types ofplanned interaction: The learning objectsasynchronous, trails (diigo, are really just theirdelicious) and tags. starting points. All of our learning objects: readings, lectures, videos, podcasts, etc. will be posted so students can view them at their convenience or asynchronously 4
  30. 30. So, what we want todo is give them adiversity of learningobjects in manydifferent formats. Then what happens? How do we help guide the students and keep them engaged? 4
  31. 31. Student engagement takesplace mainly through theirparticipation in learningactivities.Their primary activity forthis course is to make theirown learning network. 4
  32. 32. So, they will be setting up and usingblog, youtube, twitter, diigo, delicious,RSS feed, google+ accounts? Yes, to take-in, organize and synthesize information through direct application and conversation. 4
  33. 33. We will schedule regulartimes to be active in theblogs, forums and ontwitter so students cananticipate when they willbe able to communicate orreceive feedback. We have to be active participants but avoid dominating the conversation. 5
