Wrap Week 3

screen capture from USA iTunes

You can listen to this podcast on the University's iTunes site or by clicking the link Wrap Week 3 below. If you want to try using the USA iTunes site, which I recommend you try, click on USA/itunes. Click on Open USA iTunes. Click on Instructors under College of Education. Click on Course (will change to EDM310 soon) under Dr. John Strange.

Here is the direct link to the podcast: Wrap Week 3
If you would rather read than listen, here is the text of what I said in the podcast:

In Week 3 we had our first lab sessions. Quite an experience for me since I really did have to be quiet and just respond to questions. I tried, but was not perfectly still since I had to share my feelings about the changes taking place with someone. And students sitting in front of you are always an easy target for a speech. I will write more about it in Dr. John Strange's Strange Thoughts, my blog of musings.

Your tasks were:
1. To move forward on your presentations which will start today
2. Regularly read new posts on the class blog
3. Add your picture to your blog
4. Move it to the top of the column in which it resides on your blog
5. Continue to think about your PLN and how to develop it
6. Complete your preparations for your intellectual journey if you had not already done so
7. Learn how to use Audacity and practice your presentation before you actually present in class
8. Begin using Delicious
9. Think about podcasts and what makes them good or bad
10. Comment on other student blogs

Next week (Week 4) you will:
1. Give your presentation in class
2. Create a podcast team and select a topic for your podcast. (A list of suggested topics will be available on or before 6pm Wednesday 2/3)
3. Begin the comments4kids project. Assignments are now in your GoogleDocs
4. Begin gathering information for your podcast
5. Share your information with your teammates using GoogleDocs, Delicious and Skype
6. Answer the new Questionnaire posted on the class blog on Monday 2/1/10

Remember - Questions are more important than answers. Ask any of us. Call, Tweet, Skype, SMS, email. But Sunday 2/7 starting about 3pm all my attention will be turned to the SuperBowl. Go Saints!
