Teaching and Learning with Technology

The latest event in my world is my presentation at the Teaching and Learning with Technology symposium over at Metro, tomorrow. My presentation will be in the afternoon, and is titled, “Expanding Possibilities: Blogging and Vlogging; Turning Students into Online Journalists.” I’m gonna cover blogging and videos as assignment alternatives–well, here, just read the abstract:

Assigning blog posts and/or videos instead of short papers as reading responses give students a venue to open their scholarship into the global classroom. This presentation will show how blogging and vlogging stimulate student writing while encouraging students to synthesize readings effectively, retain information, present themselves as commenters and writers, and express themselves via technology.

In honor of this, here’s a video assignment sample from my 9:30am Comp Class at Front Range. It’s from their Grammar Lesson assignments. They chose to do The History of Punctuation.
