    Some of you are ready for your A4 (Participation Portfolio) submissions, so here are a few details. The first part is simple – select your example set of 5-10 postings, capture their links, wrap them together with a short overview of your participation, and email that directly to me. The second part is also simple, […]

      I agree.
      I think the challenging part is going through the 10 assigned A3.
      The A3s I am currently reviewing are all good. Unfortunately, we can only choose 3.

      Hi David,

      Thanks for advice on how to keep the discussion going, and I hope that more students are willing to take you up on the challenge of reviewing past choices in this course, and determining what may have got them to change their mind on certain educational innovations.

      In most MET courses, the final week of class is a bit sombre, with most classmates finishing off their assignments and not very interested in starting up new discussions. Usually a few will post their farewells to classmates they enjoyed chatting with, and then in a few weeks the discussion board disappears into the ether, as WebCT will only stay open about a month after the term has ended. Here we have a unique opportunity to keep the discussion going indefinitely, as past examples of ETEC 522’s blog are still active and easily found on-line. It is comforting to know that mine and others’ thoughts and reflections will be accessible in the months and years to come, and I fully intend to keep my Virtual Globe 3.0 post active, with some updating of video content, as a permanent location for future stages of this venture. It would be great to see how many other wonderful ideas in the field of learning technologies can be traced back to this group’s postings.

      I really don’t know how much I will be able to post on my original “Emerging Market Poll” as it seems like another lifetime that I made those choices. I would rather like to see where classmates think their ventures will be in five years time, keeping with the forward-thinking push seen in many of the posts so far.

      All the best,

    Hi, Does anyone know what tool was used to create the ‘perfecting your pitch‘ presentation that we watched earlier in the course? This is a really effective tool for having a ‘face-based’ presentation along with graphics and media. Anyone know how to do this? Also: The service I’m thinking of pitching is an intermediary between […]

      in Ontario, if a parent gives written permission for a third party to communicate with a teacher (eg a doctor with medical information, a private tutor hired by a parent, there are no legal problems. In the opposite direction, the parent permission allows for 2 way communication, although the parent always stays in the loop – the conversation between the 3rd party and the teacher is never kept from the parent. As for the perfecting the pitch question, I will view the presentation and see if I recognize the tool.

      The simplest answer I can give is to select a topic of some initial interest to yourself. The focus of your analysis can be a product, a company, a group of companies that form a marketplace, a program within a school district, even MET itself. The idea is to provide an analytical understanding of how this entity thrives. Yes, the topic selection is quite open and large because it matches the overall learning technologies marketplace.

      Good luck,

      Thank you. I think I now have a better understanding of what should be done.
