“Mediated” by Thomas de Zengtita

1 Comment

What I’m hoping to accomplish:  I am hoping to solidify the units, the ordering of things and get going on the actual outlining of the units. It’s daunting. I don’t know how long it will take, but I suspect it will be a 2+ day job.

What I would like to mention:

I am trying to: Incorporate Universal Design for Learning, Understanding by Design, learning relevant to the 21st Century Learner, and while I had some understanding of all of these things prior to the process, I was not a pro by any stretch. I’m learning as I go, and learning as I implement. While I feel very confident in my ability to do this, it is time consuming. Still crossing my fingers that if I am thorough enough, the writing will be easy.

What I accomplished: We’ll see…

An aside:

This video out of Kansas is amazing. Notice that nearly every frame added to the overall composition is a link to the student’s individual presentation– it’s time consuming to sit down and watch all of them, but they are definitely worth the view. As for the book I mentioned in the title of this post– I think our staff should all get a copy.

  1. Kyla, I randomly clicked on a photo in that posting, and it happened to be the cover of “Mediated”! I just looked it up at the Reader Store, and it’s there, so I’m going to purchase it for my e-reader! Thanks for the suggestion!

    I agree with you about the student videos — I watched 3 of them, and they offer a wide range of views on education from the students’ perspective. Well worth the time, if one has it!
