For Winter 2010 (used to be Fall 09)
- some "homework" before first day of class
- maybe look at Michael Wesch's U Manitoba lecture, with its four main categories. get them to think about each of the categories...
- also, the video about "establishing a community" - Stian sent...
- short paper by scardamalia and bereiter
- maybe filling in a survey about their knowledge communities, media, etc
- fill in a set of tags about their interests. Pre-populate a database with student semantic metadata. (maybe could be connected to the idea garden.)
- some "day 1 activity"
- surveying previous themes, project design ideas
- forming groups,
- some day 1 homework
- Jan van Alst paper (knowledge transmission)
- somehow introduce the notion of "tagging themes or design ideas"
- this could help us determine collectively the design ideas or
- building an ongoing visualization of the space
Idea garden - visualization.
- seeds are planted (ideas)
- allow community to sprinkle energy or attention on them, grow them, mature, differentiate, combine, etc
- allows community "voice" to emerge.
Chrome and Safari can show quick view of web sites you've visited.
- combine with "wordal"
- can set up a growth of ideas, participants
- need to be able to look back, to look forward
- make sure we "digest" the previous implementations' pedagogical content
- more time to plan your group's enactment (more than a week)
- design: about right level of depth.
- 2 weeks is good
- keep eye on the breaking wave - what is new, where are things going? Maybe each group, or the class as a whole, could track certain blogs. Or keep a blog.
- keeping informed about national policies, programs, etc.
- advancing the technology into a deeper level of semantic indexing, association of ideas, even time line
- making sure we have enough time for design. (instead of always running out of time). or - more than giving it more time, how do we get it into a prototype or more experiential format. maybe even picking up on previous years' designs.
- University of Regina Prof used Twitter with his class, and opened it up to a wider community
- keep RSS feed. Maybe require people to submit things to a stream (with tags).
- each week, spend some time at beginning of session. Maybe could "tune" it to the theme.
- Web master - maybe needed to clean things up, tag things, etc.
- Add an "FI" or "IS" element to each theme. document
- citeulike or del.ic.ious.
- how can online platform inform the onsite work. Maybe some kind of structure or voting mechanism. Presenters could "craft" a question - like a litmus test, where the answer space is initially blank, but then subsequent people either vote for the answer, or suggest an alternative answer
- using voting, idea completion, building on ideas, etc - actively - maybe in each class session. Would be nice to have a tool that enabled that.
- print flyers
- put them up + post them.
- twitter (broadcast somehow?)
- facebook page?
- inside of SMT,
- inside CSTD
- inside CTL
- info session (online)
- promote to the calendars for the various collaborating units.
- hpme (health policy management evaluation)
- move to drupal?
- what about wiki?
overarching design ideas
- maybe focus it on education and learning
- resources, blogs, etc
- online learning
- smart classrooms
- need more formalized assessment and feedback. peer review.
- maybe some ongoing blog reading and reporting. (each person has to submit one blog reading per week - or create a blog for the class that runs only during the class.
- maybe get a citesyoulike site for the class. Use only that for all papers.
- some ongoing blog task, and maybe
