I try to be creative and innovative in my approach to teaching . . . I've just about perfected the game show approach to education (name a tv show and I'll think of a classroom application!!) . . . but I'm not convinced about the Ultranet-everything-online-24/7 approach. I don't think that the majority of students are ready for it . . .
. . . however, today I took the next step in my personal evolution in online education . . . I now have a virtual classroom on moodle! I know it's been around for a while but I have had neither time nor inclination to use it. I've taken the plunge and established an online VCE H&HD class. My students all successfully logged on and started exploring. The next test will be to see how many of them actually make use of all the 'extra' stuff I have put there for them to extend themselves.
For my part I have had a lot of fun gathering resources and working out learning sequences . . .
