Discussion Posts

Each week, PLENK moves to a new weekly discussion forum. You can see them all here. Today, we are starting the Week 7 discussions.

Good Tech to Help the Teacher Avoid Just Form Filling
, Week Nine General Discussion
by Susan Grigor.  I want to raise two issues in this discussion because there are two sides to this coin: the teacher is expected to keep more and more detailed records of more and more tasks on more and more individual students; the teacher is expected to spend more hands-on time with individual students.1. Teachers now need to keep track of any number of Individual Education Plans, giving parents Daily Report Cards and Daily Homework/Unfinished Work lists, noting accommodations, holding ....

My students discuss connectivism - on topic for course, off topic for week
, Week Nine General Discussion
by Jane Wilde.  I would love your feedback about a threaded discussion my students and I have been having about connectivism. They are graduate students taking a course called Pedagogy and Technology. I am trying to help students understand connectivism while trying to make sense of it myself. This is actually a thread in a forum for chatty kinds of discussions generally off topic.

PLENK2010 Making the Obvious Apparent
noreply@blogger.com (Skupik), Skupiktalk
PLENK2010 Why do I consider my booklets unique? I am not writing about the usual things things that math books write about. My books do not have pages of drill exercises.
