This is the culminating activity for the Experimenter module.

Which activities did you choose? Write a reflection on your blog to share your experience. What did you use to experiment?  Why did you choose to do whatever you did? How will you use the new ideas, formats or approaches that you experimented with when you are designing learning experiences?


  • What you did.
  • How you did it (what tools and resources).
  • Why you chose those activities to experiment with.
  • How your “experiments” turned out.
  • What worked well.
  • What you would do differently.

Add graphics and videos where appropriate. Come up with a jazzy title. Add an openly licenced and featured image. Tweet a link to your published blog post to @ontarioextend and be sure to include the hashtag  #oextend

Hopefully experimenting was both fun and enlightening. If you have any ideas about experimenting you’d like to share, be sure to tweet to @ontarioextend with the hashtag #oextend or send an email to
