    I like this idea and had been thinking of doing this for my online classes. I would also love research that backs this up- if there is any. Another thing I was thinking of doing: using an Avatar review assignment directions. I find that most of my online students miss items in their assignments. They do not read the same on a computer as they do from a book and I think they miss a lot. Anyone have information on that?

For students who have relied on these aids, the freedom to explore and create is the last thing on their minds, so deeply has it been discouraged. Many students simply want to know what their professors want and how to give that to them.

  • We have had our why's, how's, and what's upside-down, focusing too much on what should be learned, then how, and often forgetting the why altogether
  • I like to think that we are not teaching subjects but subjectivities: ways of approaching, understanding, and interacting with the world.

  • students quickly realize the importance of their role as co-creators of the learning environment and they begin to take responsibility for their own education.
  • Nothing good will come of these technologies if we do not first confront the crisis of significance and bring relevance back into education.
