My first post is on Mr. Will Richardson's blog Read.Write.Connect.Learn. He wrote about how our generation's experience with blogging is so different from today's generation outlook on how they share their everyday thoughts. They have the popular website Facebook. Over the past decade, literally everyone I know and speak to on a regular basis has a Facebook. Some pour their thoughts out on status' or notes and it has become yesterday's typical blog. Here's my comment on Mr. Richardson's blog post.
Hi Mr. Richardson, I'm in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class at the University of South Alabama. I find it very true that the generation after us is being shaped by a very different social standard, such as Facebook. It's very fascinating to watch it happen over the past decade along with the ever evolving technology out there. Thank you for sharing.
In the second post, Mr. Richardson is writing about how PBL needs to have real-world applications because studies show that many employers require their employees to work together for a short period of time on projects and then stop, before bring them back together for another project. Also, that a project needs to feel meaningful to the students so it promotes more deeper thinking toward the topic.
Hi Mr. Richardson, I'm in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class at the University of South Alabama. Kids do need to know what work will look like when they leave school and I'm very interested in how PBL is helping by using real-world applications in its lesson plans. Thanks for sharing!
