Today, I saw Dr. Wesch’s new offering about students in a couple different places. I have to say that the man is a genius. This should be required watching for anyone who teaches. It is funny because watching the video made me think of all the lecture halls I sat in while attending college. I can honestly say, I have retained little to nothing from those classes and college was not that long ago for me.
The ones I do remember were small and the teacher did know my name. We usually sat around a single table and conversed.
I am teaching an online course to a group of school librarians from New York. It has been an adventure so far, but one of the students posted another great video to her blog today. It is a little long, but reiterates some great points about using technology to teach.
–Jane, is wishing she could re-plan her class tomorrow
