Catching My Breath and Reflecting as Teacher & Student
akh003, Haas | Learning
Like many in my Flat Classroom Certification cohort, I have to admit that having a week to breathe in the certification course and do catch up really was appreciated. Simultaneously following and participating in PLENK2010, has been arduous and taken a bit of a dip the last two weeks. Plus, I found myself in what an old friend referred to as an assessment bottleneck, which is code for English teachers, meaning I had a load of papers to read. Combined with a few Writing Project initiatives I ... [Link] 2010-10-27T21:00:57

Initial Observations on a Grading Experiment

As I have been trying to play a little catch-up with PLENK2010, I have been reading over some material on assessment from last week. This also corresponds with a major professional development initiative at the school in which I work.

PLNs versus PLEs and Goals of Participating
akh003, Haas | Learning
Reviewing the resources from the first week of PLENK10 has been an interesting and more formal introduction to the concepts of what are the similarities and distinction between the personal learning network (PLN) and personal learning environment (PLE). Prior to this course, the only real distinction I had seen regarding personal learning was differentiating the [...] [Link] 2010-09-18T20:00:36

A Path to PLENK10
akh003, Haas | Learning
Over the last couple of years, I have tried to follow and participate in the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), Connectivism and Connective Knowledge, that George Siemens and Stephen Downes lead on the learning theory Connectivism. Yet, ultimately, as my own teaching responsibilities got rolling, I inevitably fell off the pace and ultimately had to abandon my [...] [Link] 2010-09-18T16:00:51
