posted message: I summarized participation data I have, up to now, here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqenMfoYXJb3dF9vcG0waTdiVGN0M2VVdjZuY1NoOHc
If I missed something, please let me know privately.
I will be doing several summaries next week, which won't be tasks (just my summaries of course activities). Tomorrow, I will post a task inviting you to share math celebration ideas, which will be a bonus task.
It has been an interesting journey for me, for sure! So many things I learned... For example, the original syllabus had about 5% overlap with people's interests and had to be reworked. Computer-based vs. computer-delivered math makes no sense to people as categories. Being an evil overlord is fun, theoretically at least.
posted message: We have an email group and we are not afraid to use it! If you have not done so yet, please join the group at http://groups.google.com/group/ed218arcadia/subscribe
We will use the email group more actively in the next few weeks. Today's discussion has to do with this week's topic: http://groups.google.com/group/ed218arcadia/browse_thread/thread/3d83f6a3ddf8b6b8#
posted message: Out of 38 participants of the course, more than a quarter have blogs or frequently updated sites, that I know. We are awesome like this!
Did I miss your blog? Please add to the list!
posted message: I am not sure if this is the right place to post our Prezi's but here is mine
I chose this one because it related to my one blog this week about testing in classrooms, specifically in math. Although not everything in this video is something I agree with, I think it brings up good points and makes me rethink the way we assess students and gage knowledge.
