"So how to put the VT together? Do we send images to one person and they put it together and then we comments audio, video?"

Challenge 9 - Assess

"Voicethread is fine by me. Some ideas: What is a handshake and why is it important? Handshakes are symbolic and also act as a 'record' of first official contact. This might be important when looking back at how the…"

"No worries !!!  So what shall we do? Voicethread? One slide per group each member using their own picture? We need to be able to model it and to provide some guidelines. What do you think about that? "

"Sorry - I have fallen a bit behind... I like the idea of Voice Thread... It seems a bit more interactive. i also like the idea of a picture rather than an avatar, but to each their own."

Collaborate and Communicate - Wiki Project - Tablets in Education

Working on the wiki with Tasha was great fun.  We quickly communicated via the wiki discussion and comment tools and began our research. 

From their the video creation was relatively simple as long as it involved an aspect of innovation, invention or prediction.  I've always loved the Rip Van Winkle metaphor to education and thought it was appropriate given the transformation that technology can bring when integrated well.…

Planning a handshake with Catalina, Jason and Caroline

What is a handshake and why is it important?

Handshakes are the first form of acknowledgement between two people or more.  They confirm that all involved are in agreement of what is to come.  Sometimes handshakes can seal a deal.  In a global project the handshake does just that.  We are introduced to others ready to embark on a similar voyage.  This handshake is exciting as it is often the first time many of the students in the project will interact with…

Peer Review - bonus Challenge

These FCP students had been creating wiki pages and videos that help explain the main topics discussed in the book The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman.



Our task was to review and comment on their… Continue
