Tags:richreflection 3 Comments Rachel Hey Kevin, I’ve been snooping around seeing what sort of ways everyone was reflecting and I love the way you chose to share. Google slides are so perfect for simple not taking without giving yourself a mountain of work. I don’t think I’ve thought of using a slide for notes like this before and its awesome. Thanks for the idea. June 18, 2017 Reply kklott Thanks Rachel! I originally wanted to use Diigo to annotate, but I needed to upgrade in order to upload Belshaw’s book. So … I used a trial version of PDF Expert to annotate. I took screen shots and threw them onto Google Slides. The most difficult part was figuring out how to find the embed feature on Slides (File>Publish to the web>Embed). I also like how it all turned out. June 19, 2017 Reply Chris Lott I also enjoyed your approach to this…good job exploring alternative methods for reflecting and sharing those reflections! A few specific comments: The move to “coding” is an interesting one for many reasons. Yes, it is another language in many ways, but as a language arts teacher you know how complicated that assertion can be. In his reflections, Bob Heath had some questions about the almost reflexive notion of adding “coding” to curriculum: http://www.rdheath.com/blog/?p=546 — to which I added some thoughts as well, which you can see there. The “digital literacies developed entirely through re-mixing” idea fascinates me for very practical reasons: not everyone necessarily is, or certainly doesn’t want to be, a “creator” in the typical sense. But adding the idea of re-mixing/mashing-up/etc as a perfectly valid form of expression really opens the door to many more people who aren’t interested in creating “from scratch.” I always have students in this class who look at the Collection assignments and say something like, “OK, I’ll do this, but I’m not creative, so…” But, in fact, they are—and they inevitably prove to be—once some other ways of being creative are “allowed” by me…and by themselves!
