We could watch your understanding of HTML grow. Many of you, as we explored meme culture over the last few days, built your first website. I heard someone so amazed when they threw the url to their Glitch project into Slack and the url appeared like a working website.
It was, it is a working website. All that is measurable.
Yet that isn’t the objective. You are the objective, the rest of us we’re just the content to get you there.
So in a long tradition of borrowing from David Cormier I ask you to define your learning subjectives. You can work to remixing an activity and using my course template, but you don’t have to. Want to use Omeka to curate a collection, cool. Want to write a book proposal and chapter in Scalar. Want to build a unit on equivalent fractions feel free to use my template. Go crazy. All the tools are available for you to install with a button.
What you can not install is purpose. Your mission in this class must involve you wanting to accomplish something with digital teaching and learning.
My Learning Goal for #EDU522
I want to be able to send and receive webmentions from my class website. What Chris Aldrich is doing makes me rethink assessment and badging. We can capture a lot of learning with webmentions.
My goal with the course template I designed for EDU522 was to always have simple easily remixable template based on simple easy to navigate instructional design. I have gotten there.
Now I need the webmentions.
I may not finish by the time class is over. That’s okay. I am going to document and share my learning as I go.
I am looking forward to seeing what everyone commits to building, and if that’s nothing more than building your domain that is a plenty fine subjective.
