It is turning into a busy summer of online educational technology and online community book discussions. The copy of Curtis Bonk and Ke Zhang’s new text, Empowering Online Learning: 100+ Activities for Reading, Reflecting, Displaying, and Doing, just arrived. Curt blogged about his book, and I am looking forward to beginning the discussion at SCoPE.
As Curt explains in the text, R2D2 in his work stands for Read, Reflect, Display, and Do. I have heard some colleagues mention concepts such as this, and my interest as an instructor and instructional designer is peaked. It seems the book is oriented toward higher and adult education, so this should fit. I am looking forward to learning a lot here!
Did I mention that this book discussion is free to join? SCoPE is a wonderful community that Sylvia Currie coordinates, and is well worth getting to know if you have any involvement at all in educational community and practice as supported through technology.
