I feel my students this semester did not learn as much as they could have from fellow classmates so the opportunity for more peer learning is something I would like to enhance the next time I teach #edst6306.
I’m a “Creative Commons” kind of girl. This is the best introduction I have seen for students and faculty on what Creative Commons is. The way I see it, nothing is really “original” … it is all a mashup of past discoveries, observations and thoughts.
Dr. Matt Hale, faculty in Seton Hall University’s Center for Public Service is teaching a graduate course this spring semester called Information and Computers in Public Service. PSMA6008, is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to serve as an interface between administrative personnel in an organization focused on policy and those focused on technology.
A number of learning activities are planned for this course:
“Me and My Technology” … an early writing assignment to help students reflect on how they use technology in their everyday lives. By comparing reflections, students will explore how different people use technology in different ways.
A collaborative book/article review
Individual article reviews to be written in individual student blogs
“How are you going to do that?” – a collaborative group project for a factitious organization. The class will identify a series of goals and taskes related to the project as well as desired organizational outcomes. Each project will then review a different technology to see if their technology will aid the organzation in reaching their goals and objectives.
