Here is my summary of learning for EC&I 831.
I decided to theme my summary of learning to correspond with my learning project.
I took the recipe for the cupcakes from this blog post. I actually wanted to use a different recipe, one that I had tried before, but the recipe I had originally intended to use was a little more complicated and therefore harder to film.
The recipe remained the same, but I altered the ingredients to reflect either the tools of the class (wet ingredients) or the class content that I really enjoyed and connected with (dry ingredients.)
Mix together (in our main Zoom web conferencing tool):
2 cups of Google+
2 interactions on Twitter
1/2 cup of Feedly
1 cup of Twitter chats
1 cup of our Blog Hub
1 teaspoon of Wikipedia
In a separate breakout session, mix together the course content:
3/4 cup of videos by Michael Wesch
2 cups of the Open Education Movement and Aaron Swartz involvement
2 teaspoons of The Power of Networks by Manuel Lima
1 teaspoon of Felicity Duncan’s Why Kids Are Leaving Social Networks
1/2 teaspoon of John Oliver
Slowly combine the course content (dry ingredients) to the tools we used (wet ingredients.) Once the knowledge and ideas are finished, it’s time to add the icing to the cupcake (blogs and how our knowledge and ideas are presented.)
I used a recipe that I had made before – actually the original cupcake recipe that was too difficult to film. The icing, however, works perfectly and is very delicious. The recipe is from Ming Makes Cupcakes and is cupcake 24 on the website.
The icing ingredients are:
1/2 cup of WordPress
4 cups of good content
1/4 cup of neat pictures
1 teaspoon of videos
1 tablespoon of citing things properly (using Compfight)
2 tablespoons of an interesting title
And there you have it! Cupcakes that represent our learning in this class!
A big thank you to my husband for his help with filming and editing this piece.
All in all, I’m really happy with my summary of learning (although I wish I had scripted a more complete ending.) I hope you enjoyed it, as much as I enjoyed our class!
