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.
Complete the following 4 tasks this week:
- Week 2 - Social Task
- Week 2 - Reflective Task
- Week 2 - Practical Task
- Week 2 - Project Task <- Note: This is a social task. You will need to coordinate a time to meet with your group this week. You should email your team at the beginning of the week to set up a virtual meeting time. Click on the Project Task to learn what group you are in. You could also meet asynchronously using your group's page (see Project Task for details).
