As I mentioned a few weeks ago in IT6230 – Internet In The Classroom, I will be using this blog as a way to provide discussion prompts for students in my IT6230 course (Internet in the Classroom).
After you have viewed the multimedia presentation, respond to the following…
What changed Susan’s excitement into anxiety about her new online course? As an online teacher or course designer what steps would you have taken to prevent Susan’s anxiety about the course? As a school-based teacher at Susan’s school, what steps would you have taken to ease Susan’s anxiety about the course?
Your own response to this prompt should be posted by the end of the day on Friday, 13 April 2012. You should comment on THREE other students’ blogs by the end of the day on Monday, 16 April 2012.
If you are not a student in my IT6230 course but would like to participate in this discussion, please leave a comment below. In case you are wondering, the readings for this week are:
