Week 8

3 highlights of this course

Even though they were really challenging, the course blog, the mid-term wiki, and the final website were amazing projects in different ways. I learned so much from each, both technically and theoretically, both collaboratively and independently. Putting everything together into a complex, creative, summative product requires the total package of thinking (many Bloom levels!) and many breaks for chocolate.

2 new understandings

(1) Formative assessment!!! Its importance in learning and teaching, and ways to do it online. (2) Technology: I’m not an expert, but I am already using new tools: VoiceThread, FlipGrid, Google docs for collaboration, PBworks–and I’ve gotten much better with WordPress.

Thank you!
