For Unit 2 I need to do quite a bit of reading. I need to revisit the methodologies of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism–from an online learner in the ONID program angle versus just those parts used at work. I need to read more on connectivism. I need to reflect on the similarities and differences in instruction (and prep work and …) for online and face to face classes. I need to summarize the 2010 Department of Education analysis of online learning studies.
Whew! That’s going to take a bar of chocolate!
I’m going to collect a few links right here!
