Week 2 - Introduction (Oct 10-16, 2011)

Hi!  Welcome to Week 2. This week we will continue to develop a vision for what it means to use Web 2.0 and Social Media effectively focusing on the following guiding question:

What does it mean to learn deeply with Web 2.0 / Social Media in the context of my classroom and school?

We will build a vision of what is possible with social media. Using this vision you will modify, enhance or build a lesson plan/project (to be taught during Week 3) that takes your use of social media to the next level. You will also join working groups (2-4 people/group) and begin discussing the whole class project (Kit).

Objectives, you will:

  • Learn more about your peers in this course.
  • Articulate what it means to use social media to learn deeply within the context of your own classroom.
  • Create a social media enhanced lesson plan (to be taught during Week 3).
  • Meet your working group.
