  1. Hi Cecil

    First let me say I lost a point last week for not displaying the concept map on the blog itself. I too used a hyperlink in Mod-4 and inquired about it after the grade was posted. Same with you from Mod-4? Just wondering.

    About your concept map. I asked Thea pretty much the same question. Why do you think wiki’s and blog’s are dynamic? I understand they came along with Web 2.0 and are “more” dynamic than text-based tools, but what makes these venues dynamic for interactivity. My arguement stemmed around the far-end asynchronous nature of these tools and that “timely” flow of information between contributors probably rarely happens. I would even dare to say that the posts of students using these tools need to be evaluated in a F2F environment for class discussion to make them dynamic. What is your take on this?

    I like what you say about the use of the Smartphones in the classroom and agree that the evolution will eventually conquer the administration apprehensions. Many students are carrying these devices with microprocessors and even more will in the future. I feel that it is up to the student caregivers to block any inappropriate web-sites through the cellular provider. Social educational networks like FaceBook could be monitored in the LAN of the district or institution. As far as text, I say let them text what they want and take the punishment if the receiver reports inappropriate texting to diciplinarian administrative professionals. I know, I make it sound easy. But if we are going to make students more responsible for their own learning, then it only seems appropriate to me that we encourage them to be responsible for their own communications. Maybe this idea could even dismantle some cyber bullying by making troubled youth think twice about what they say on their Smartphones and social networks. It is something to consider anyhow. Good work.
