Earlier I posted the following on the AP blog, and (even though the answer I gave was for their test & not yours) Judith & Jared picked up on the Tweet and RT'd to their followers. Fair's fair: I'll give Expos Comp the same deal. I'll Tweet now, and if everyone follows by 8 I'll Tweet more. NOTE: please remember to keep the clues straight-- AP uses the hashtag #dplitcomp and Expos Comp uses #dpexposcomp.
For a while now I've been thinking about how to hack our physical
classroom. I've designed furniture, interactive wall spaces and
surfaces, talking Arduino units that collect data and put it where we
need it, hardware, a fully integrated Open Source Learning experience,
the works, so that it really will be "not a classroom, but more of a space, a space that hold [sic] endless possibilities."
first thing's first. You have certainly proven yourselves worthy, and
you have inspired me to the next level of Open Source Learning, but-- I
don't know, maybe it's finals-- sometimes it still just feels like this
is all, um, you know. A class.
I hate that feeling.
everyone knows, there is no better time to mess with a student's head
than the night before a big test. Very interesting and potentially very
rewarding things are about to happen all around you. You won't want to
miss anything that will help you take full advantage.
example, in five minutes I will reveal the answer to one question on
tomorrow's vocabulary final. I will do this on Twitter via
@prestonlearning. You should probably start a Twitter account and
follow @prestonlearning. Like, now.
To be fair, since
this may take five minutes, especially if you're still on campus, I will
include the hashtag #dplitcomp in the Tweet so that it appears on the
course blog feed. Starting at 8:00 P.M. I will post more answers-- and
for those I will not include the hashtag, so if you're not following
@prestonlearning by then you won't see them. Also, since so many of you
have mastered the art of collaboration and will no doubt post all this
on Random Absence Mentoring, FB, and elsewhere, I will only continue
Tweeting the correct answers if every student in every period is
following @prestonlearning by 8:00 P.M.
Have a nice day. :)
