A jog may work, I have been using Tolis' tool since last semester with a vengeance! Here is a sample of some jogs I have created for various content areas. I think for Brian and I, we may have to put everything in one place to present. We run the risk of people running ahead- but it will save time in opening files and avoid the whole sharing nightmare that I had before in Wimba. Last semester, I pre-loaded a powerpoint- and then once I hit the archive button, it wouldn't load properly in the screen. I hate the lag of presentations in total share mode, it just gets annoying for me. Therefore, I must stick to my guns. Other questions remain--- what lesson to teach? Which Synectic strategy to use? I do not want to over-think it, nor do I want to leave anyone confused as to the application of Synectic theory. Last semester was definitely simpler, but I am grateful that Brian and I do not have to present first. I made the powerpoint too long last semester- so I am glad Brian will do our digital summary. He is bound to get right to the heart of the theory.
Reflection on class:
I was kicked out of wimba a few times- that means Brian and I each have to have total access to everything we are creating- so we have a back-up plan. I felt bad for John and Ryan, because they did not have the benefit of watching some of us struggle last semester with Murphy and his "anything that can happen, will happen." I thank them for paving the way. Can't wait for next week, the avatars are my favorite elements of the presentations so far. I want puppet avatars.
