It's been another fun week of looking at student engagement. As part of that activity, I thought I would share a couple of examples that have been created this week. The first two are from Laura Gibbs and are nice reflections of her experience in designing activities for student creation.
- She posted this piece reflecting on the student creation videos with Stacy and Adam, and made some great comments on choice and voice, as well as on "growth mindset." (http://known.lauragibbs.net/2015/unit-4-power-of-creation-with-stacy-and-adam).
- Laura also posted this reflection on how she addresses aspiration vs. readiness when it comes to student-creation activities (http://known.lauragibbs.net/2015/dancing-partners-and-multiplicity-another-post-for-the-power-of). The examples from her Myth Folklore and Indian Epics courses are really great.
Finally, as we start gearing up for next week and our discussions on "The Power of Imagination," I want to let everyone know that we are going to have another Twitter Chat. So, if you can, get it on your schedule now. We'll be chatting on Thursday, August 13 at 10:00 AM CDT. I'll be tweeting more information about this beginning Sunday.
See you online!
