Alright… can you believe it?! We are approaching the end of Course 1. This week we will wrap up Course 1 and you will post your Final Project idea on your blog. Reminder, you are NOT required to complete the unit before the end of this course. Remember this is an iterative process and this is your first attempt to redesign based on what you have been learning in COETAIL. It’s a great chance for you to gather feedback from other cohort members as they view your project thought different lenses. I am excited for you all because you have been giving each other such well thought out and valuable feedback and I know this will provide you with great food for thought. If you think you are not going to be able to post your final project by the end of the week please contact me as soon as you can so we can work together to make a plan.
Some of you have pointed out that to get the most out of the final project you would like to modify certain aspects to tailor it a bit to work better for your particular setting. I am completely OK with this but please let me know your thoughts before hand so I have an understanding of your motivations and thoughts behind the modifications. This also provides me with an opportunity to dialogue with you and helps me to understand your situation better.
Great job replying to last weeks blog post everyone! If you have a moment pop in and take a look at what your cohort members have to say and perhaps add a bit more to the conversation.
I’m in Seattle this week working with Jeff Utecth and the teachers of Marysville School District for the next couple weeks. We’ve been talking with each other about how awesome you guys are and how much we’ve enjoyed reading your blog posts over the last five weeks!
I’m going to add another post later in the week with a bit of geeky stuff that may help to smooth your workflow.
Thank you all for your contributions and don’t forget to check out all the great comments to last weeks post!
