Connect-Ed.

Because apparently our learning path isn’t enough. I’m in the middle of working through the Connect-Ed resource modules.

Pros

For real teachers, this can be counted as part of your PD hours, and is actually not that difficult.

Some of the simulations for facebook are, although very very very very slow, good at showing the pressure young people can face online from their friends and peers.

Cons

Not very helpful, really. Some good info, but nothing I didn’t already know.

Slow. So. very. slow. Not hugely engaging.

The trouble with recommending modules like this to complete, is that almost contradicts all the things we are being taught about using ICT as a learning tool. I’m only half way through, but I certainly don’t think this program is transforming my learning in anyway. Although, the simulations are the most effective part of this, and used on their own could be useful in a classroom setting.

Half way point!
Half way point!
