DESIGN THE COVER OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY: Include an image, the title, subtitle, and write a 200 word (or less) biography. This will be the way that you creatively introduce yourself to the other participants in the class.
Share your work to the G+ community(Join our group to continue the discussions http://buff.ly/LHdIp5 ). I have created a section called Book Cover Autobiography to upload our work to. As people share let us make sure we connect and let them know what we think.
Add your short bio (200 words or less) in the text field.
Use this assignment as a opportunity for self reflection, creativity, and a way to share something about your life with everyone.
The other challenge I have for you is to explore a new app to help you be productive. Share out in the Week 3 discussions in G+ community. What are apps/tools that you love to stay focused and what is a new one you are testing out this week? We must constantly be active learners so test out at least one new app. Next week we will share out how this app helped/did not help.
Two tasks to challenge you a bit this week. I think you can handle it!
I am planning on another #edplay Twitter Chat next week. I am working on a topic for the chat, but if you have something that you would like addressed please let me know.
I will be sharing out some reading articles again next week. I don’t want to bombard us with articles every week, but I have a few that I would like to share out from Papert. In particular looking at some articles focusing on our mindset as children and how to merge that with our adult mindset. If you have any good ones let me know.
I am bringing back Teacher Tinker Time to my school. This Thursday we will be using Build to Express with staff to work through the concept of teamwork. I will try to post some pictures and video if staff allows me to.
Last, this weekend I worked a robotics station for Bettendorf ScienceFest(Bettendorf ScienceFest: Coffeechug Cafe/Robotics Room, Google Glass, Robots, Art, and STEM http://wp.me/p4covo-JN) It was a blast and reminded me the importance of play and exploration.
Have a great week and I look forward to your book covers.
