I will be in UH 271 today from around 4pm until 8pm to help anyone with any assignment that they need help with. If you are in the Thursday class and need to make up for an absence, come to either today's class or Monday, March 28 to make up for it. If you are in Thursday's class and are behind, come to class. If you are in Monday's class and need to make up for an absence, you can attend both today and the 28th.
I have Re-edited the Monday class's TaskStream narratives. . .I will work individually with those who hadn't edited in class. I will try to get to the Thursday class re-edits this week.

Moday Class: I gave feedback to all of you on GoogleDocs on Sunday. I must say that I am a bit disappointed by a few groups who either had incomplete paragraphs or both partners wrote to the SAME artifact. I thought it was clear in class that these were to be complete so they could be edited on the weekend.
Thursday Class: I will have your narratives with comments by Wednesday evening. Please ensure you have given peer comments and that you have two different artifacts.

This week I am going to introduce a number of assignments, many of which won't be due for awhile, but I want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to work on the assignments throughout the time off and through Spring Break. I will show you how to create a GoogleForm that you will use for the assessment of your presentation, we will discuss how to embed files in your blog & get the checklist for Emerging Technology, and lastly, how to get started creating your PLN. For Journal's 6-10, I am giving you the first article, Journal 6, that discusses PLNs and Journal 7 will actually be the PLN assignment.
Don't forget that we have a modified schedule for the next few weeks.
Week 8: Monday, March 14, I will be in UH 271 from 4pm until around 8 pm. There is no class on Thursday as I will be at the Computer Using Educator's Conference.
Week of March 21: Spring Break
Week 9: Monday, March 28, I will be in UH 271 from 4pm until around 8 pm. There is no class on Thursday as the campus will be closed due to Cesar Chavez Day.
My Monday class must attend either week 8 or 9. The Thursday class is highly encouraged to attend either or both sessions to receive assistance on any of the multitude of projects. Please use Twitter and the #ed422 hashtag to ask any question you might have or to share any cool resource you find.
I'll discuss this in class this week, but I thought you might like to see this in writing.
Remind me to discuss the use of Skype & Box.net with the class.
Journal 6: "Grow Your Personal Learning Network," by David Warlick. This is from the March/April 2009 issue of L&L.
Journal 7: This will be your PLN assignment. See Instructions on the Creating Your PLN page on the class blog.
This Week's Question: What is your current favorite timesucker? This is the thing/activity/game/website/whatever that prevents you from doing other things you know you should be doing (like, say, completing work for this class).
Currently, it is a tie between Words with Friends and Angry Birds on my iPad. . .either of which can steal an hour our two from me without my knowledge ;-)
