Blog Post #15 Instructions Now Available

Blog Post 15 Due 7/17

Collaborative Assignments

In Collaborative Blog Post Assignments, there may be one or more assignments for everyone to do. The rest are to be divided among the members of the group. Each member of the group prepares their post in a Google Doc which is shared to edit with the other members of the group and with

Once a student has completed their post, they ask the other members of the group to critique it using the EDM310 Rubric Form (found in your Google Docs after Unit 2). They then revise their post. Then combine all the finished and revised posts into a single post on your blog. Your post should be on top. The other group members' post below yours. Each must be headed by a bold header indicating the primary author of the post that follows.

If there is a disagreement among the members of a group as to interpretation, meaning, implications or conclusions, the dissenting member should write a minority report clearly indicating what their disagreement is and the arguments they make supporting their minority position.

These instructions are to be followed for all Collaborative Assignments (Blog Posts 2, 4, 7, 9, 12, 13 and 15).

All members of the group must read or watch all of the assigned materials. Otherwise an appropriate critique is impossible.

There are many different ways in which you can communicate your findings/results/commentary to an audience using many media tools: text; audio; video; pictures; music; specialized programs, etc. You are encouraged to use different presentation techniques. Try not to use a method more than twice in the seven collaborative assignments.
