As a progressive culminating design activity students work in groups to develop a theoretically grounded lesson, using technology-enhanced media. Design pages illustrate the collection of ideas and approaches to design and develop knowledge communities for a variety of purposes. Design projects are in different levels of implementation and some of them may have the capacity to be picked up and further developed in future KMD2003 classes.
Previous years' design efforts
We typically start by setting up a "brainstorm page" where each of us adds a "seed" of an idea that came to us in the first weeks of the course. This could connect one of the course themes to a certain institution, like education, health, music - or an issue like global climate, homelessness, etc. Brainstorm contributions include a basic overview of the idea, what knowledge media it would employ, and what knowledge communities it would intersect with. Then we all go through the brainstorm entries and add our names to the ones that we think we could possibly be interested in working on, as well as comments below it. After the initial brainstorming phase, we establish working groups, choose a topic, and spend the remaining design time putting flesh on our idea. Please feel free to refer to previous design ideas below, as you think about your own idea and even as you develop it during the course.
