suifaijohnmak, Suifaijohnmak's Weblog
Jenny asks in her post of The tyranny of teaching with content: How do we prevent the type of assessment which measures content coverage and memory of facts on one day, only for it to be forgotten on the next day? … Continue reading → [Link] 2010-11-02T01:35:59

This Week in PLENK2010 - How Manage Information? Maybe by Network Memories
Linn, Jakten på den perfekta lektionen
One thing is for sure, It is impossible for me (only one person) to manage the never ending news in e-learning for example. But many people in a network following news in e-learning can manage well I think .It seems to me that finding the right network/collaboration gro.up (or maybe two or three networks) and then trust and rely on the network(s) rather than just myself for managing information, is important nowadays.If some people in a network read/watch a piece of information and find it ....

PLENK2010 Ain't It Awful (Skupik), Skupiktalk

Knowing about these games, and recognizing when one is in one, helps one to dis-engage from the Game and get real. Authenticity is one of those rare commodities that so many people are desperately .... [Link] 2010-11-01T22:23:00

#PLENK2010 Tea Party Drink Dirty OIl (Skupik), Skupiktalk

That would likely bode well for Alberta'.... [Link] 2010-11-01T22:13:00
