Module 7: A View From the Media

Here is a link to a recent article from the Education section of the The Georgia Straight (October 30 – November 6, 2008).

The article by Karen Pinchin is titled, Wireless access tests students’ focus in class.

It seems a perfect follow-up to the discussions we all had during Module 7 activities a week or so ago. I think you’ll like this short article because it raises many of the issues we discussed and adds some concrete examples cited by the various instructors and students interviewed for the article.

The article appears as a blog entry online, and as a newspaper article in this week’s Straight. You can add your own comment to the Straight’s blog, just as you can here.

Module 7 Discussion

Hi everyone. I spent all day Monday reading and answering posts… I kept track on paper of my contributions… Now I can’t find most of my posts… it would appear that some are under user: ncaston, there are none under user: nancy, and I know that at some point, it would not let me post and I posted under user: n.castonguay… It seems to me also that I checked a box that activates the ‘get email for responses to your posts’ or something like that… and it may be that i have received none, but if i did, i have no way of knowing…

David & David, i think that it makes it very difficult for someone taking many courses to keep up with discussions if they are all in different places… All 4 of my MET courses consist of groups presenting units, all using different forums, wikis… you name it… lately, i am trying to follow discussions in 8 locations… 4 of which change venues weekly… This means I now have about 16 membership accounts that I have created to keep up… There are yet more to come… Given that our marks are based on participation, this makes me uneasy because I really never know whether or not instructors actually know all the work that is being done…
