Blog Assignment #12
On the first Sunday of the month you will need to find an Education/Technology related article to read, shortly summarize and share the link to the article with the class. The article needs to be recent (within the last 3 months of the current date). The purpose of this is so that you learn to navigate around the web and ideally this could help you build your PLN. As a part of C4C your classmates will read your article/short summary and leave a comment with their thoughts about the article. By having to locate an article yourself, you will probably have to visit several different sites/blogs to explore what's out there. Hopefully you will have some really interesting discoveries!
Dome, computer could bring 3D learning to school
This article is about teacher Doug Meyer and his hope to use an inflatable dome and computer software to enhance student learning. Mr. Meyer teaches at a Charter-school and is hoping to find sponsors to fund this project. According to Mr. Meyers, "the technology works similarly to a hologram in Star Trek." The dome could be used in biology, engineering and design classes.
