A model probably for use with level 3-4 students as it is focused on discipline (teacher - content) ..... you could always modify it to suit your context and for use with Web 2.0 tools. As is, it is more inclined towards OLD pedagogical practices in class just a bit... Continue reading

How's it? Your prezi is great Chris .... maybe what you can do is pull together your concept map and the framework mainly how or why you think they complement each other and in what ways if they did. Maybe one of those videos you have done - it will be easier.
Would you like to acknowledge 'someone' for the concept map? I would just like to query the pedagogical underpinning of the concept map. I know you have done the 3P's video but I would like you to discuss the concept map in relation to some pedagogical framework.

"now you need to think how you can make or in-cooperate CAD in your framework" <-- this is not doing away with CAD but just re-thinking an approach that would some how incorporate this or the process in the framework --> have a look at this link maybe this will help -->

Hi Scott Good post but I would like to hear your comments after reading this: Sheely, S. (2008). Latour meets the digital natives: What do we really know. Paper presented at the Hello! Where are you in the landscape of educational technology? ASCILITE 2008. from
Love it!!!! Great video Kamuka .... a good mix ..... how do you think mobile technology empowers our learners? You touched on context and authenticity of the learning environment (PBL) .... how else does mLearning impact on learning? Maybe you can write this bit on your blog ...... Love the video!!!!!

#SLT10 remember you don't have to create a new framework, you could always adopt one and remix to suit your teaching context. Please just be careful to acknowledge the person(s) work you are using and be able to justify your stand. Continue reading

Good job Scott!! I am interested to see your framework and how it creates room for the 3 P's.
Kamuka read up on "zone of proximal development" and maybe something that will add to what you are talking about above is this video: by Ken Robinson

Hi Chris After a quick look: 1. a good start 2. maybe presenting the map in some other format would add a bit more clarity - at the moment it seems the tools are used individually - no clear indication of how they work together. 3. I would probably do away with the last box(CAD & Web 2) - you have web 2 covered now you need to think how you can make or in-cooperate CAD in your framework ... maybe something you can consider is focusing on the method rather then the end production ..... so something that could be done is a blog post as a reflective exercise after students have completed their CAD drawings outlining their method. Hope the comments above help.

Have to say Kamuka excellent summary of the 2 readings! I find attitude towards technology to be the biggest determining factor not so much what year one was born. Few other things I think about that have an impact on how one reacts to new technology are the social background, dynamics at home and purpose.

Hi Scott Good post, maybe your next post could what are the characteristics of Pedagogy 2.0 and how Web 2.0 tools complement the process. What is the relation between the two and how they influence each other. What impact it has on learning and teaching.
Good one, when you made this claim, "It is proven that visual aids are successful and Images that can be accessed and displayed at any moment, and could possibly allow for strong and in depth reflection.". It would be a good idea to back it up with some references (citations) from people who have done some research on it ...... it will add more weight to the claim you made.

Good one Kamuka! I good mix of theory, reflection and evidence of use in class. Looking forward to your other blog posts.

“Is our first assessment reading ten significant papers and commenting on them really encompassing the concepts of E-learning and the living curriculum or is it just transferring the paper-based ideas from the past to the web?” The assessment events and even the assessment rubric don’t require you to simply regurgitate what you have read, it has an element of critical thinking and analysis – Assessment rubric- “Associations with your current practice in Class Justifications of: (1) How do the ideas fit/doesn't fit with your practice in class and (2) potential impact on student learning.” As you identified in your post “incorporate practices that focus on the student capacity to analyse their own knowledge, practice independent judgment and evaluate their own and others performance”, do you not feel the course so far and the assessment is asking you to do this? Normally similar assessments are written essays of about 3000 words. The reason we asked for 10 blog posts was to provide guidance, feedback, allow a degree of authenticity in the process and create a social presence for collaboration (Twitter). What we expect you to be able to do from your readings is identify areas in your practice that could be done differently and perhaps effectively, be able to justify what you will be doing and why. From things we have done in class and some Web 2.0 tools we have demoed, you should be able to appropriate them in a way that suits your context for learning and teaching. There are many cases where people use technology for the sake of using it with no clear understanding or pedagogical underpinnings. We don’t want to encourage this hence practice with regard to theory is important.
