Lab Report (Response)

Added by Sidney, Response for Lab Report Activity

For this module, I experimented with a number of new technologies. I created an animated GIF without using photoshop (which was fun and easy, I will probably use these for my course material development in the future) and I also played around with http://www.googlelittrips.org/ which seems like a really neat idea. As a huge fan of… Read more »

What is a variable? (Response)

Added by Sidney, Response for Show a Process as an Animated GIF Activity

For Show a Process as an Animated GIF, I decided to make my animated GIF around the idea of a variable. I used the youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvrszgiexg0 to get ideas, and see how they explain it. I knew I wanted to do something with boxes, and I don’t have photoshop on my laptop, but with limited means… Read more »

Extend from my Office (Response)

Added by Sidney, Response for Do it Daily Activity

Sitting in my office, looking at my clutter, I am trying to think what extend means to me. Without getting too philosophical, I think it’s the extension that happens outside of the classroom and carries on into the real world. Even though I try to model projects on real world problems using actual data, there… Read more »

Mapping your Personal Learning Network (PLN) (Response)

Added by Sidney, Response for Mapping your PLN Activity

I thought this was a very interesting activity because it parallels something we recently did in MKT1005. In that example, students researched the hashtag #UnitedBreaksGuitars and wrote an essay on what the tweets around the subject, actors, or other factors meant.

This post is going to deal with CRAAP, currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, purpose. Specifically we are going to deal with an issue around open source tools in class. In my program, we sometimes want to make students aware of a particular piece of software, but not each an entire course about it. When looking at… Read more »

Added by Sidney, Response for Curation Creation Activity

For this post I am linking to my padlet of OER resources I collected around social research and ethics https://padlet.com/sidney_shapiro1/ypl9ioylc0k1 I highlighted OER resources that I would use in various courses and started to build a list of how they connect together by topic and subject (to reflect the various courses and subjects in the program).

Find Your Fit (Response)

Added by Sidney, Response for Find Your Fit Activity

For this activity I am going to go through the process of three OER that I could potentially use in a course. I actually went through this activity last summer when looking for an open source text for a course. I searched through many resources until I came across the perfect book. I finally found… Read more »
