Discussion & Badges - Module 4

Now that you've spent some time with this week's materials, think about the following questions and respond to any or all of them by starting new topic or replying to a topic in one of the discussion spaces. (How do I participate?

Reflection: What challenges occur when students are empowered to create online "text" and share globally with others?

In Online Content Construction, we are empowering teachers and students to use the reader/writer nature of the Web to create and publish information. What are the "soft skills" and discussions that we need to have as we conduct this work?

Ideas for contributing your reflection:
  • Share a post in the Google+ community
  • If you have a personal blog, write up a response there and link to it in one of the discussion spaces so others can comment
  • If you're feeling adventurous and you have a webcam, record a video response and share it in the discussion spaces for comment
