This is a blog that I set up for another course, so I thought I’d just add to it rather than start anew.
I haven’t looked at it in a while, but since completing the course, I’ve also done an Instructional Skills Workshop online through Royal Roads University, where I was introduced to the vast number of tools to use with students.
My sense is that there are two things happening: an excitement and enthusiasm to play with tools a lot of the time, and a caution that much thought needs to precede the use of any tool. The main question I have is How does the tool support the learning? . I’m hoping to come across a template that demonstrates which tools have been used successfully in specific learning contexts. Maybe the TOOC Team can create one of these on Googledocs.
Another question is around the linking of email passwords to all google tools. I’m not so comfortable with that. What about you?
