    In my GameOn! Level 1 - Intro to Video Game Design & Development course my peers will cultivate an understanding of the breadth of game design by posting their reflective analyses of the topic areas defining, dissecting and designing video games, and will provide peer feedback through gap analysis and reflection. As this is an introductory course, the actual creation of games is not the intended outcome.

    You might be interested in the Insider's Guide to the Professor's Mind located at http://insidetheprofessorsmind.blogspot.com/

    It focuses on providing students the Professor's perspective on a variety of topics.  Be sure to review the older posts!

    It would be interesting to view this from a cross-cultural perspective.  Maybe others can offer insight on the transition process for other countries.  I would be very much interested in learning about the processes!

    I like this creative model for brainstorming and created this for my challenge:

    In the 'Certified Networked Teacher' challenge peers will understand Networked Learning by creating, delivering and managing their own Learning Resources with the use of Web Tools
