In search of a good idea!
I have spent sometime thinking about what it is that I would like to ‘learn’ as part of this course and I am lacking some inspiration. I do not whether that is due to my growing understanding of what actually constitutes a Networked and Global Learning example or my desire to challenge myself to learn something completely new.
I mentioned in my ‘Me as teacher’ post that I had been considering looking at ways to introduce Skype into my teaching and/or coding. However, the practical challenges of how to overcome the realities of time zones and academic timetabling constraints within the classroom, as well as school imposed limitations, all contributed to my initial shelving of these ideas. I did, however, sign up for Codecademy today and completed 15 or so lessons, but not sure if I am really that passionate about coding. Did the same with Scratch, but again, not feeling it!
I read that David was going to dive into Minecraft, not sure if that is what others are thinking as well. Truth be told though I am not much of a gamer, much to he horror of by 11 year old niece! But if that is what everyone else is leaning towards, I could see the benefits of the group discuss that might come from a number of us doing the same one.
So then, where does that leave me for declaring my learning intention for this aspect of the course? Sadly, still in need of some inspiration!!! Ideas anyone???
